Updates & Upcoming Events

Overview of FINRA's Financial Professional Gateway (FinPro)
July 26, 2018 • 3 p.m. – 4 p.m., Eastern Time (ET) (1 hour)
Join FINRA for the first in a series of Registration Systems Transformation conference calls hosted by senior leaders in FINRA’s Registration and Disclosure Department. This event will include an overview of current and future features of FinPro, which is the gateway for current and former registered representatives to manage their securities registration requirements including the information that is available in CRD. Registration is open to the public; however, spots are limited. VP Bill Swanstrom and Senior Director Noah Egorin will discuss:

  • Getting your staff started with FinPro,
  • What representatives can do and see on FinPro today,
  • What representatives will be able to do soon on FinPro,
  • What FINRA envisions representatives will be able to do on FinPro in the future, and
  • How you can get involved with FinPro development

The call will conclude with a Q and A portion.


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.”

New CRD Pilot Is Now Closed
FINRA launched the New CRD Pilot Program on March 26, 2018, with a small group of firms and their users to begin collaborating with our constituents as we develop the next generation of the CRD system. The pilot concluded on June 29, 2018, and FINRA thanks the participants for their insightful and constructive feedback.
