The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) have been engaged in preliminary discussions about whether to revamp the process that most brokers use for requesting so-called “expungements,” said Linda Fienberg, who heads FINRA’s arbitration unit.
