A final production User Acceptance Test (UAT) will occur on Saturday, August 20, 2022. Firms should notify FINRA Market Operations of their intent to participate in the UAT via an email to [email protected]ra.org. Please include the firm name, MPID(s) used, names of testers and web usernames, if applicable, no later than noon on Thursday, August 18, 2022, to register for the test.

The UAT will start at approximately 9:30 a.m. ET and end at approximately 12:30 p.m. ET. The trade execution date for the test will be August 20, 2022. 

A conference line will be open for the duration of the test. Due to a limited number of lines, firms should consider sharing the line if calling from the same location.
