National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners

COMING SOON – A New National Registry

FMCSA will launch a new National Registry that will feature a new look and feel on May 13, 2019.

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

FMCSA will be posting “how to” videos and user guides for the new National Registry on the current National Registry website prior to May 13, 2019.

Current National Registry Functions Limited Beginning April 22, 2019

As part of the preparation for the launch:

All new National Registry registrations will be suspended from April 22, 2019 through May 12, 2019.

The only action that should be performed by users of the National Registry between April 26, 2019 and May 10, 2019, is to upload results of CMV driver examinations performed.  National Registry users should refrain from taking any other actions through their National Registry account during this time as we cannot guarantee that any actions taken, other than uploading results of examinations, will migrate to the new National Registry.  If actions are taken during this time that do not migrate to the new National Registry, the user may need to repeat the action once the new National Registry is launched.

The current National Registry will be completely offline to allow for the transition to the new National Registry from May 10, 2019 through May 12, 2019.  National Registry users will not have access until the new National Registry is launched on May 13, 2019.

For Medical Examiners and Medical Examiner Administrative Assistants who have not created accounts and migrated their National Registry account by April 26, 2019, your National Registry account will be suspended and you will no longer have access to submit results of CMV driver examinations.  You will need to work with FMCSA to have your account reactivated.
