SIFMA Urges MSRB to Broaden Proposed Exemption on Requalification.

SIFMA asked the MSRB to broaden a proposed exemption to allow individuals who have been out of the securities industry for a limited time to requalify as municipal advisors without having to retake examinations. SIFMA urged the MSRB to harmonize the exemption with requirements for muni dealers and broker dealers.

In its comments, SIFMA said that such harmonization is important because many firms and individuals are dually registered with FINRA and the MSRB. SIFMA also requested that the MSRB’s relief be extended to municipal advisor principals.
