New FinPro Feature: Form U5 Filing Notifications

New features were recently added to the Financial Professional Gateway (FinPro), a secure online system for current and formerly registered individuals. As of October 11, individuals who have created a FinPro account will receive an email notification whenever a new Form U5 filing is submitted in CRD. FinPro maintains a PDF version of the most recent Form U5 submission for review and download on an individual’s account. Please note that firms are also required to provide registered individuals with a copy of their Form U5 within 30 days. For more information, please visit the Financial Professional Gateway page on finra.org.

New CRD Export Feature – Available July 28
On July 28, 2018, a new export feature will be implemented which allows users to download the data from the Activities list into a .CSV file. Once the data is exported, firms can use or manipulate the data as needed to support their compliance work processes.

New CRD Rollout to All Firms on June 30
On June 30, 2018, FINRA systematically entitled users and administrators who had access to all CRD Queues to the first set of new CRD features: Activities, Reports and Quick Links. Entitled administrators can now add and remove entitlements to the new CRD system as appropriate for users at their firm. FINRA will continue to build and deploy additional new CRD features alongside the existing CRD functionality, which we will refer to as “classic CRD.”
