Form FR-1 ensures that the foreign dealers do not attempt to sell shares of the new issue above the offering price or to certain prohibited organizations with which there may be a conflict of interest. Foreign dealers only fill out Form FR-1 with they buy new issues for resale. Less formally, it is called a blanket certification form.

The form helps to ensure that foreign broker-dealers will not sell a stock intended for public offering above the offering price or to individuals associated with those broker-dealers. Also called blanket certification form.
