Central Registration Depository (Web CRD)

FINRA operates the Central Registration Depository (Web CRD®), the central licensing and registration system used by the U.S. securities industry and its regulators. Web CRD contains the registration records of broker-dealer firms and their associated individuals including their qualification, employment and disclosure histories; it also facilitates the processing of form filings, fingerprint submissions, qualification exams and continuing education sessions. Web CRD is a secure system that only firms and regulators that have been granted access by FINRA can use. Learn more about requesting access, system functionality and best practices on the pages linked below.

The general public can review reports generated from Web CRD information that is disclosable through our investor protection tool, BrokerCheck.
