Series 14 Qualification Examination
Series 14 is a qualification examination administered to compliance officials at New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) registered broker/dealers. The 110-question test is intended to ensure that individuals designated as having overall day-to-day compliance responsibilities for their firms, or who directly supervise ten or more persons engaged in compliance activity, have the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to carry out their job responsibilities. The Series 14 exam was announced on July 29, 1988 and first administered September 25, 1989. NYSE member organizations were warned of disciplinary action if they continued operations without a Series 14 qualified compliance official after March 31, 1990.
