MSRB Provides Guidance to Municipal Advisors on Changes to Its Registration Process

May 12, 2014

ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 12 -- The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board issued the following news release:

The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) published guidance to assist municipal advisors with understanding changes to the MSRB's registration process taking effect today. The guidance seeks to clarify that these changes are separate and apart from the Securities and Exchange Commission's transition to a permanent registration regime for municipal advisors.

MSRB Rule A-12 was amended to consolidate registration requirements into a single rule and to create a simplified electronic registration form. Firms that are currently registered with the MSRB under the previous requirements must verify, update and complete their registration information in the new form by August 10, 2014. The MSRB's guidance responds to frequently asked questions about the MSRB's new registration process, which may be useful for both municipal advisors and municipal securities dealers.

The MSRB is also hosting an educational webinar to assist current registrants with submitting the new registration form. Learn more and register to attend the webinar(
