Form 211

Access Form 211

Users will need to log into Firm Gateway, click on the Forms and Filings tab at the top of the page and select Form 211.

Market Makers must complete this form to initiate or resume quotations in a non-exchange listed security on a quotation medium. By completing this form, a market maker is representing that it has satisfied all applicable requirements of Securities Exchange Act (SEA) Rule 15c2-11 and the filing and information requirements of FINRA Rule 6432. It is not necessary to file this application if an exemption applies.

In order to access the form in Firm Gateway, firm users must ask their Super Account Administrator (SAA) to provide them with either Submit or Read-Only entitlement.

If you have questions regarding the electronic Form 211, please call the OTC Compliance Unit at (240) 386-5100. For assistance with entitlements, contact the FINRA Gateway Call Center at (800) 321-6273.
