  2. In addition, the USA mentions that both the agent and the broker-dealer are to notify the Administrator of new employment.

Update

  1. If an agent has any material change in vital information (e.g. address) at any time, both he/she and the broker-dealer must notify the Administrator.

Post Registration Requirements

Renewal

Termination

  2. An agent's registration is active only as long as he or she is affiliated with a broker-dealer.
