- FINRA’s Annual Entitlement User Accounts Certification Ended Feb. 8
Super Account Administrators (SAAs) for firms with more than one user who have not yet certified must do so immediately. The ability to create, edit and clone accounts has been disabled and will remain so until certification is completed. Other consequences include notification to the appropriate FINRA District Office for FINRA member firms or notifications to other regulators for non-FINRA organizations. In addition, all user accounts for an organization will be suspended. Should account suspensions occur, SAAs from affected organizations will be required to work with the FINRA Entitlement Group in order to regain system access.
