The system contains the registration records of more than 3,700 registered broker-dealers, and the qualification, employment and disclosure histories of more than 629,000 active registered individuals. 

Web CRD also facilitates the processing and payment of registration-related fees such as form filings, fingerprint submissions, qualification exams and continuing education sessions.
