In light of COVID-19 guidance from Federal, State and local health authorities, NIST has made temporary adjustments to staffing and operations to protect the health and safety of NIST employees and the public. As a result of these changes, all MINEX (Minutia Exchange), FRVT (Facial Recognition Vender Test) and other biometric evaluation submissions are temporarily suspended. Thank you for your understanding.
