Notice to Members 96-77

CRD Will Provide Firms with Advisory Messages When Significant Disciplinary Actions Require Reentry of Individuals into the Regulatory Element of the Continuing Education Program

Effective December 1, 1996, the Central Registration Depository (CRD) will send an individual Continuing Education Program Advisory Message for both Regulatory Element Directed Sequences (see Exhibit 1) and Regulatory Element Directed Sessions (see Exhibit 2) to notify member firms of Continuing Education Regulatory Element requirements for their registered employees who have become the subject of a significant disciplinary action as defined in Rule 1120 of the NASD® Membership and Registration Rules (formerly Schedule C, Part XII of the NASD By-Laws). Previously, firms were notified of this information only by the monthly Requirement Summary report.
