FINRA Rule 4517 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.
