As part of the process of developing a new consolidated rulebook (the Consolidated FINRA Rulebook),1 FINRA is proposing to adopt a new FINRA rule based on NASD Rule 2280 (Investor Education and Protection). The rule would require member firms, with certain exceptions, to provide customers with FINRA's Web site address and information regarding FINRA's BrokerCheck program at least once every calendar year. The text of the proposed rule is set forth in Attachment A. Questions regarding this Notice should be directed to Rachael Grad, Counsel, Office of General Counsel, at (202) 728-8290.
