FINRA Discipline: FINRA Rule 9211- Authorization of Complaint

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law LLC:

This is the first of a series of posts to discuss the rules associated with the FINRA disciplinary process. FINRA Rule 9211 provides authority to the Department of Enforcement or the Department of Market Regulation to issue a complaint against an associated person.  

A disciplinary complaint is issued when an associated person has violated, or is continuing to violate, any rule, regulation, or statutory provision, including the federal securities laws and the regulations thereunder.

Once a complaint is severed, the disciplinary proceeding will commence.
