IM-5140. Use of Multiple MPIDs

This rule is no longer applicable. NASD IM-5140 has been superseded by FINRA Rule 6160. Please consult the appropriate FINRA Rule.

NASD considers the issuance of, and trade reporting with, multiple MPIDs to be a privilege and not a right. A Trade Reporting Facility Participant must identify the purpose(s) and system(s) for which the multiple MPIDs will be used. If NASD determines that the use of multiple MPIDs is detrimental to the marketplace, or that a Trade Reporting Facility Participant is using one or more additional MPIDs improperly or for other than the purpose(s) identified by the Participant, NASD staff retains full discretion to limit or withdraw its grant of the additional MPID(s) to such Trade Reporting Facility Participant for purposes of reporting trades to a Trade Reporting Facility. A Trade Reporting Facility Participant that posts a quotation on an NASD system and reports to that NASD system or another NASD system a trade resulting from such posted quotation must utilize the same MPID for reporting purposes (e.g., a member that is both a Trade Reporting Facility Participant and a Registered Reporting ADF ECN must use the same MPID when reporting a trade that resulted from its posted quotation on ADF).
