Web CRD Form BD Timeliness Report Card

The Web CRD Form BD Timeliness Report Card is a monthly analysis of FINRA firms' ability to meet certain filing obligations. In accordance with FINRA rules, firms are required to submit information related to applicant member and/or affiliate(s). This report displays a firm's performance in submitting certain BD amendment filings in the required time frame.

The information in this report is provided to assist FINRA members in assessing and monitoring compliance with certain reporting obligations under FINRA By-Laws and rules. Provision of this report does not relieve a firm from complying with obligations imposed under FINRA By-Laws and rules and does not limit or prevent FINRA from taking appropriate regulatory or disciplinary action against a firm. Firms should continue to rely on Web CRD for filing detail.
