Regulatory success hinges upon our Members voluntarily complying with NFA's rules and requirements. In this Compliance section, we focus on the examination process, some of the regulatory issues that are unique to particular types of membership categories and some of the programs we've established to help Members meet their regulatory obligations.

All NFA Members should review the information contained in the General Compliance Issues section as this covers the NFA examination process plus rules that apply to all NFA Members regardless of their registration category. 

Each Member should also review the information contained in the section related to their respective registration category (FCM, RFED, IB, SD, MSPCPO, and/or CTA). These sections discuss the regulatory requirements unique to each category. For example, the FCM, RFED and IB sections discuss these Members' financial reporting requirements while the CPO and CTA sections discuss disclosure document requirements. 

The information presented here is only intended to call your attention to key compliance issues. More in-depth discussions of many of these issues can be found in the Regulatory Guides contained in the Publication Library.

National Futures Association is a member of the Joint Audit Committee ("JAC").
