New NASD Hyperlink Requirement
Attention dual registrants: Does your firmís website mention that the firm is an NASD member?
If so, sometime between now and July 7, 2007, youíll need to make sure that your site contains a hyperlink to the NASD website, www.nasd.com.
Last week, the NASD issued a Notice to Members that provides guidance on compliance with the new requirement that websites that mention NASD membership contain a hyperlink to the NASD site.
A few key points:
The link must be located in close proximity to any reference reasonably designed to draw attention to NASD membership.
Only one link is required.
There is no affirmative obligation to mention NASD membership.
