(c)  In order to make a determination of license eligibility, the commissioner is authorized to require fingerprints of applicants and submit the fingerprints and the fee required to perform the criminal history record checks to the Tennessee bureau of investigation (TBI) and the federal bureau of investigation (FBI) for state and national criminal history record checks. The commissioner shall require a criminal history record check on each applicant in accordance with this part. The commissioner shall require each applicant to submit a full set of fingerprints in order for the commissioner to obtain and receive national criminal history records from the FBI criminal justice information services division.

     (1)  The commissioner may contract for the collection, transmission and resubmission of fingerprints required under this section. If the commissioner does so, the fee for collecting, transmitting and retaining fingerprints shall be payable directly to the contractor by the applicant. The commissioner may agree to a reasonable fingerprinting fee to be charged by the contractor.

     (2)  The commissioner may waive submission of fingerprints by any person that has previously furnished fingerprints and maintains fingerprints on file with the central repository of the NAIC, its affiliates or subsidiaries.

     (3)  The commissioner is authorized to submit electronic fingerprint records and necessary identifying information to the NAIC, its affiliates or subsidiaries, for permanent retention in a centralized repository. The purpose of a centralized repository is to provide insurance commissioners with access to fingerprint records, in order to perform criminal history record checks.
