Frequently Asked Questions
  How does a company reserve a symbol to trade on Nasdaq?
Identification Number 486
A company may request a symbol for trading on the Nasdaq Stock Market by using our online form.
 
A company may request to reserve a symbol up to 24 months in advance of an initial listing application submission. If the symbol is not used during the 24-month reservation period, it will be made free and available for other potential applicants. A company may then re-apply for a symbol reservation after the original reservation expires provided that no other company has reserved the symbol. A reserved symbol may also be released at any time with given notice. A new symbol reservation can then be made if the applicant wishes to change its reserved symbol, assuming the new symbol is free and available.
 
The Nasdaq Stock Market does not reserve symbols for the OTCBB or the OTC Markets. Symbol reservations for OTCBB or OTC Markets are managed by FINRA. Any inquiries regarding symbol reservation for OTCBB or the OTC Markets should be forwarded to otcsymbols@finra.org
