CRD Is Moving to FINRA Gateway: Form U4, Form U5 and Disclosure Letters

FINRA is integrating the registration filing functionality that supports the CRD Program into FINRA Gateway. The deployment of registration compliance tools will be incremental over time, so firms should expect to use both Classic CRD and FINRA Gateway until the integration is complete. Key dates and details will be highlighted in this space throughout the transition:

  • April 5: The ability to draft and submit Form U4 retires in both Classic CRD and the Anonymous CRD Registered Representative site.
  • May 1: Disclosure letters available in FINRA Gateway Requests.
  • May 15: Last day to retrieve read-only versions of invalidated draft U4s in Classic CRD
  • May 17: Form U5 comes to FINRA Gateway.

Besides Form U4, Classic CRD will continue to support all other features and tools — including Form U5 and disclosure letters. See the Registration Filing in FINRA Gateway page for more details.
