FBI announces 2017 NICS Retailer Day

The Federal Bureau of Investigation will host its annual “NICS Retailer Day” in July, the agency announced last week.

The one-day event, held at the Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division’s facility in Clarksburg, West Virginia, will connect federally licensed firearm dealers with federal experts on the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

“Experts who will provide you with informative presentations on various aspects of the NICS process, the NICS E-Check, upcoming NICS improvements, and much more,” the FBI said in a May 16 press release. “If you are not yet a NICS E-Check user but are interested, we can facilitate the NICS E-Check enrollment on-site.”

Agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives will also be available at the event.

FFLs can register for the event, scheduled for 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on July 25, by visiting the NICS FFL website.
