FINRA proposed a rule amendment to restrict access to representative- and principal-level qualification scores. The amendment provides that "FINRA will no longer provide a total score and a score profile for each major section of the content outline to candidates who pass a qualification examination." FINRA will, however, continue to provide these scores to a candidate who fails an examination. Subject to SEC approval, the implementation date will be October 1, 2018, to coincide with the implementation of the restructured representative-level examination program.
