Office of Hearing Officers

The Office of Hearing Officers is an office of impartial adjudicators of disciplinary cases brought by FINRA's Enforcement Department or Market Regulation Department against FINRA members.

The Office of Hearing Officers maintains strict independence from FINRA's regulatory programs and is physically separated from other FINRA departments.

Hearing officers are not involved in the investigative process. Employment protections exist for hearing officers to further ensure their independence; they may not be terminated except by the FINRA Chief Executive Officer, with a right to appeal to the Audit Committee of FINRA's Board of Governors.
