New Issue Management Training Materials/Timeline

Firms submit a FINRA New Issue Form in order to comply with FINRA Rules 6760 (Underwriter Obligation to Provide Notice), 6730 (Transaction Reporting), or 6620 (OTCE Symbol Request).  The Issue Management System replaces the existing FINRA New Issue Form and will allow firms to:

  • submit new issues;
  • save draft submissions;
  • make changes and updates to previously submitted issues;
  • submit new issues in bulk via a file upload; and
  • View the status of submissions.
