Who is required to register and why?

Most individuals and organizations that do business as futures professionals must be registered under the Commodity Exchange Act (Act). The primary purposes of registration are to screen an applicant's fitness to engage in business as a futures professional and to identify those individuals and organizations whose activities are subject to federal regulation. Some registrants may also have to be Members or Associates of NFA. You can find more information at Who Has To Register under the Registration menu.
