National Instant Criminal Background Check Busy Season Clarification of Working Hours

Federal Bureau of Investigation

Federal Bureau of Investigation

Washington, DC --(AmmoLand.com)- The FBI’s National Instant Background Check System (NICS) hours of operation for federal firearms licensees (FFLs) will remain the same as their current hours of operation during this year’s NICS busy season.

NICS Call Centers will be available daily from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. Eastern. The only deviation to this schedule will be Nov. 27, the Friday following Thanksgiving, when the hours of operation will be 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. Eastern.

These extended operational hours will be available only to those FFLs who use the FBI Call Centers.

The NICS Section will cease operation at midnight on Christmas Eve and remain closed on Christmas Day. The NICS will resume normal operations on Dec. 26 at 8 a.m. Eastern.

The extended busy season hours for NICS previously published referred to the extended hours of operation for the NICS computer system, which is available for FBI employees and state agencies operating as points of contact (POCs) for the NICS in order to expedite the processing of delayed transactions to provide more expeditious responses and enhanced service to customers.
