How to Request FINRA ADDS Standard Access
Standard access to the FINRA ADDS website is available to firm users free of charge.
Standard access is administered via the FINRA Entitlement Program-a secure way for firms to access many of FINRA's Web-based systems (e.g., Firm Gateway, WebCRD and Report Center) with a single user ID and password.
FINRA ADDS offers trade journals for transactions submitted to TRACE, ADF, and ORF. ORF is scheduled to migrate to the new platform on November 17, 2014; until that time, the ORF data provided through FINRA ADDS is test data, generated from transactions submitted to the NTF (test) facility and during the Production UAT tests.
To access the FINRA ADDS website, users need the following:
Note: Clearing firms do not need an MPID on their account to access ORF Clearing Trade Journal files.
Your firm's Super Account Administrator (SAA) can grant you access to the FINRA ADDS website. Contact your firm's SAA for assistance. If you do not know who serves as your firm's SAA, log into the FINRA Firm Gateway, click on My Account and view the information on the Applications & Administrators tab, or call the FINRA Gateway Call Center at (800) 321-6273. If your firm does not have an SAA, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
SAAs who need assistance modifying users' accounts can access a Quick Reference Guide and other resources at www.finra.org/entitlement.
Please contact FINRA ADDS with any questions.

Data Delivery Plus
TRACE Data Delivery Plus access to FINRA ADDS allows users the ability to request and download transaction data for dates prior to the most recent 30 calendar days. ORF Data Delivery Plus, ORF Clearing Data Delivery Plus, and ADF Data Delivery Plus allow users to request files for dates older than 3 business days, for any date within the prior two years. Users can also subscribe to have their files made available on the website each day automatically, removing the need to request each day's files.
Enrollment in the Data Delivery Plus services is optional, and requires the firm to submit the applicable FINRA ADDS Optional Services Request Form.
Upon receipt of the Request Form, FINRA will enroll the submitted MPID(s) or clearing number(s) in Data Delivery Plus and grant the firm's Super Account Administrator (SAA) administrator rights to the Data Delivery Plus entitlement privilege. The SAA may then give the Data Delivery Plus privilege to any users at the firm who need access to the data.
Data Delivery SFTP
TRACE Data Delivery SFTP, ORF Data Delivery SFTP, ORF Clearing Data Delivery SFTP, and ADF Data Delivery SFTP enable firms to establish an automated interface to retrieve their data via Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).
Enrollment in the Data Delivery SFTP services is optional, and requires the firm to submit the pertinent FINRA ADDS Optional Services Request Form to establish a dedicated FTP user account.
The FTP user account will only be able to access data made available for SFTP access; the FTP user will not be able to log into https://datadelivery.finra.org. Since FTP users are intended for automated access, their passwords are not required to be reset every 120 days as is the case with non-FTP firm user account passwords.
Upon receipt of the Request Form, FINRA will enroll the submitted MPID(s) or clearing number(s) in Data Delivery SFTP or Clearing Data Delivery SFTP, create an FTP user account for the firm, and contact the submitter with the information regarding the new account. At that point, FINRA will be able to establish SFTP access for the firm.
Please see the SFTP Set-Up Process section of the FINRA ADDS User Guide for instructions on setting your firm up to receive data via SFTP.
Note: Firms that enroll in optional services are assessed a monthly fee for each MPID or clearing number enrolled in each service. Firms that enroll in one or more SFTP services will also incur a set-up fee for each MPID/clearing number and facility (i.e., ADF and/or TRACE).
While Data Delivery Plus fees are assessed per MPID or clearing number, rather than per user, fees are based on the number of "Plus" reports users receive during the month.
Fee information is available at www.finra.org/datadelivery/fees.
