Contents or Length field values or the record is not parseable. This reject occurs when the fingerprint images are not compliant to the FBI’s Electronic Fingerprint Transmission Specification (EFTS)/Electronic Biometric Transmission Specification (EBTS). Ensure data elements are consistent with the FBI’s Electronic Fingerprint Transmission Specification (EFTS)/Electronic Biometric Transmission Specification (EBTS).
