We are Transforming CRD


Transforming CRD and the New FINRA Gateway Experience

FINRA is redirecting it efforts from building the new CRD system to instead integrate its registration filing functionality into the new  FINRA Gateway, which replaces Firm Gateway. As part of our Digital Experience Transformation (DXT) initiative, FINRA Gateway will offer a cohesive and streamlined user experience across all of the reporting and compliance applications that migrate to this new platform. Consolidating our technology efforts and taking this holistic approach with the FINRA Gateway applications to make them intuitive, flexible and efficient, should make it easier for firms and their associated persons to fulfill their compliance obligations.

Firm users will be contacted for a phased rollout beginning in April 2020, and the deployment of registration functionality will be incremental over time, so users should expect to use both classic CRD and FINRA Gateway until the integration is complete.
