Executive Summary

This Notice is to remind firms that registered persons whose registrations become inactive as defined in Rule 1120 of the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc.

Background

NASD Membership and Registration Rule 1120 (Continuing Education Requirements) (Rule) requires persons registered 10 years or less to take the Regulatory Element computer-based training within 120 days after the occurrence of the second, fifth, and tenth anniversaries of their initial registration date. Persons who are the subject of a significant disciplinary action, as defined by the Rule, must take the Regulatory Element training within 120 days after the effective date of the significant disciplinary action and then within 120 days after the occurrence of the second, fifth, and tenth anniversaries of the disciplinary action. Any registered person who has not completed the Regulatory Element within the prescribed time frames will have his or her registration deemed inactive until the requirements of the program have been satisfied. Any person whose registration has been deemed inactive must cease all activities as a registered person and is prohibited from performing, or being compensated for, any duties requiring a securities registration. The Rule also stipulates that a registration that is inactive for a period of two years will be administratively terminated. A person whose registration is administratively terminated must reapply for registration and requalify by examination.
