NASD Notice to Members 00-35

NASD Regulation Reminds Firms Of CRD Continuing Education Notification Method And Informs Firms To Review Written Supervisory Procedures

NASD firms are reminded that the Web CRD no longer sends hard-copy Continuing Education Advisory Messages, or “yellow sheets,” to advise firms of their registered representatives’ Regulatory Element requirements.

Instead, firms must access and view the continuing education information in their Firm Queues on Web CRD.

Web CRD also makes available supplemental CE reports to assist firms in identifying and tracking their registered representatives.

As a result of these changes, firms should review their written supervisory procedures as they relate to the manner in which firm staff identifies, notifies, and tracks their registered representatives who are required to satisfy the Regulatory Element and to revise the procedures if necessary.
