Examinations by the compliance staff are authorized under the Kansas Uniform Securities Act, K.S.A. 17-12a411(d).

Kansas Open Records Act
Records obtained during an examination are not subject to dissemination under the Kansas Open Records Act. However, as provided in K.S.A. 17-12a607(c) the records can be shared with other regulators or disclosed for the purpose of a civil or administrative action. In addition, all correspondence between the compliance staff and the registrant is likely to be subject to the Kansas Open Records Act once the examination is concluded, including any informal resolution of deficiencies that is not reportable on the CRD system. Confidential information such as social security numbers and client identifiers would be redacted from any such disclosure.
