CRD and FINRA Gateway: Classic CRD Form U4 Will Retire April 2021

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.

Form U4 filing is now available in both FINRA Gateway and Classic CRD. Firms are encouraged to begin using FINRA Gateway to file Form U4 in preparation for the retirement of Classic CRD Form U4 filing capabilities on April 5, 2021. See the Registration Filing in FINRA Gateway page for more details, including enhancements to the FINRA Gateway Form U4.
