What is the ORI on the .EFT File for NFA Applications?

The term ORI that is located on the FBI/ATF FD-258 fingerprint cards is short for originating agency identification. The ORI number is a nine-character identifier assigned to an agency.  The ORI helps the FBI and the ATF designate the originating agency for the fingerprint cards that are being submitted.  For applicants who are submitting .EFT Files for the ATF NFA application the ORI number that is most commonly used is: ATFSIMPLE.  However, other ORI's can be used.  Other common ORI's that are used are WVATF0800, WVATF0900, PRINTSCAN, etc.
