FINRA Contact System (FCS)

Annual Verification Due

As a reminder, Rule 1160 requires firms to complete an annual verification of their FCS contact information within the first 17 business days of each calendar year. Please login to FCS and perform your annual review. This year's deadline is Tuesday January 27, 2015.

FCS facilitates member firm reporting of key contacts to FINRA, which is a requirement of FINRA rules and By-Laws. Designated firm contacts are used to facilitate voting in FINRA elections, compliance with various rules and By-Laws, and to improve FINRA's communication with our member firms.
NASD Rule 1160 requires firms to:


  • update all contact information required by FINRA via FCS promptly upon any material change;
  • review and verify contact information annually; and
  • comply promptly with any request for contact information.


Firms must complete an annual verification of their contact information within 17 business days after the end of each calendar year.
