Created by Ezra Weinstein, Modified on Thu, 18 May 2023 at 11:18 AM by Chami Heyer

Corestore Setup


1) Set the Background Check Choice to FDLE-FES


  • Go to Company > Settings
  • Scroll down to Boundbook section.
  • Choose "FDLE-FES" from the Background Check dropdown menu:

  • Make sure to save your changes.


Using the Plugin

Requires Version 2.5.1 or later of the NICS Check Plugin.


When you go to Section C, the button should read "Start FDLE Check" (if it doesn't, go back to Store Config and make sure you set the Background Check to "FDLE-FES").


Click the Start FDLE Check button to launch the FDLE-FES site and take you to the login screen where you can log in, then follow the instructions below:


Screen: Welcome


  • Click the  plugin button in the toolbar which should automatically click US Citizen or Non US Citizen based on the information from Section B of the 4473.

Screen: Background check information

  • Click the  plugin button in the toolbar which should fill in all the fields/dropdowns.
  • Review the information for correctness, then click Submit


The FDLE-FES support currently only inputs data to the Background Check screen and does not have the ability to retrieve the status/code results after you submit the background check, so you will need to manually copy/paste the result code back to Section C of the 4473 and set the background check status.
