ME Removal from the National Registry

The White House

In an effort to bolster IT security and align with the White House Executive Order 14028 mandating multifactor authentication, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has implemented enhanced measures for access to the National Registry.

As of 2018, the transition to using for Medical Examiners' accounts has been underway. On January 24, 2024, a notice was submitted to the Federal Register signaling a crucial update for Medical Examiners. Those who have not established a account within the next 30 days will face removal from the National Registry. It's important to note that this action is geared towards reinforcing security measures.

For further details on this significant development, the full notice can be accessed on the Federal Register website here. If you have any questions regarding these changes, the FMCSA’s Medical Programs Division can be reached at or by telephone at (202) 366-4001.

To align with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's enhanced security measures and ensure your presence in the National Registry of Medical Examiners, we invite you to enroll in the NRCME Training Institute program today to begin your certification process. Whether you are seeking initial certification or looking to recertify, our comprehensive program will prepare you with the latest knowledge and skills necessary to excel in your role.
