The application must contain:
(1) The information or record required for the filing of a uniform application; and
(2) Upon request by the director, any other financial or other information or record that the director determines is appropriate.
(b) Amendment. If the information or record contained in an application filed under subsection (a) is or becomes inaccurate or incomplete in a material respect, the registrant shall promptly file a correcting amendment.
(c) Effectiveness of registration. If an order is not in effect and a proceeding is not pending under § 47-31B-412, registration becomes effective at noon on the forty-fifth day after a completed application is filed, unless the registration is denied. A rule adopted or order issued under this chapter may set an earlier effective date or may defer the effective date until noon on the forty-fifth day after the filing of any amendment completing the application.
(d) Registration renewal. A registration is effective until midnight on December thirty-first of the year for which the application for registration is filed. Unless an order is in effect under § 47-31B-412, a registration may be automatically renewed each year by filing such records as are required by rule adopted or order issued under this chapter, by paying the fee specified in § 47-31B-410, and by paying costs charged by the designee of the director for processing the filings.
(e) Additional conditions or waivers. A rule adopted or order issued under this chapter may impose such other conditions, not inconsistent with the National Securities Markets Improvement Act of 1996. An order issued under this chapter may waive, in whole or in part, specific requirements in connection with registration as are in the public interest and for the protection of investors.
