National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners

FMCSA has been able to resolve several of the technical difficulties with the National Registry system but is still experiencing a high call and email volume from those requiring technical support.  We are actively addressing incoming technical support requests to resolve your National Registry questions and/or issues as soon as possible.  We apologize for any delay and appreciate your patience.  If you need technical assistance, please contact the National Registry Technical Support Help Desk by submitting a Technical Support Request Form, emailing, or by calling (617) 494-3003.

COMING SOON – A New National Registry

FMCSA continues to develop a new National Registry to better serve you.  During this process, you may continue to access the current National Registry until our transition to the new National Registry is complete.

For users who have created accounts and successfully migrated their National Registry account, current usernames and passwords will not be affected by this change.

For users who have not migrated their account, you have the opportunity to complete this action prior to the launch of the new National Registry.  To avoid suspension of your National Registry account, we encourage you to create an account with and link to your National Registry account as soon as possible.

Step by step instructions including screenshots and a short video for establishing your account and linking your National Registry account are available on the "Help" page of the National Registry web site.

If you need assistance, please complete a Technical Support Request Form.
