The Dodd-Frank Wall Street and Consumer Protection Act is a federal statute signed into law by the Obama administration that is the largest overhaul in financial regulations since the Great Depression. These regulations mandate that financial institutions keep all records of trading activity on their premises with easy accessibility.

The record-keeping rules outlined in the Dodd-Frank Act come down to 3 main regulatory requirements:

1. All communication between parties must be recorded
2. Must be able to reconstruct trades as they happened
3. All communication amongst the parties are to be monitored by the same rules

The rules in regards to call recording state that recordings must be maintained in a searchable format for a period of at least one year, on the premise of the organization, and must be able to be retrieved within 72 hours. Dealers are required to establish and maintain a system to supervise all business activities, including the record-keeping of the following media types:

  • Telephone
  • Voicemail
  • Facsimile
  • IM
  • Chat
  • Email
  • Mobile
  • Digital or Electronic media
