MSRB Creates New Online Training Videos on Making Primary Market and Continuing Disclosure Submissions to the EMMA Website
The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) has made available free online training videos to assist municipal securities dealers and issuers in making primary market and continuing disclosure submissions to the Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA®) website. The MSRB’s EMMA website is the official repository for primary market documents, which include official statements and other documents that describe the terms and conditions of a new municipal bond issue.
Primary Market Tutorials
The MSRB has developed a series of primary market submission training videos to support and enhance municipal securities dealers’ compliance with MSRB rules about submissions to EMMA relating to the primary market. The videos walk through the steps required to submit primary market documents and information about a new issue of municipal securities, amending a submission and submitting information related to remarketings and refundings, among other topics. The titles of available primary market videos are below.
Continuing Disclosure Tutorials The MSRB has also created two new continuing disclosure videos that explain the steps involved in submitting continuing disclosures to the EMMA system and how to create and modify groups of securities in EMMA for purposes of making disclosures.
Although the online training videos are aimed at municipal securities dealers and issuers, they are available free of charge to all municipal market stakeholders.
