FINRA Rule 0190 Effective August 24, 2105

FINRA Notice to Members 15-07 noted that  the effective date of Rule 0190 is August 24, 2015.  Rule 0190 is based largely on NASD IM-2420-1(a) (Transactions Between Members and Non-Members; Non-members of the Association).  The rule confirms that a member firm will be considered as a non-member of FINRA from the effective date of any order or notice from FINRA or the SEC issuing a revocation, cancellation, expulsion or suspension of its membership.

Additionally, it should be noted that in the case of a suspension, a member firm will be automatically reinstated to membership in FINRA at the termination of the suspension period.
