National Registry System Login for Certified Medical Examiners

Effective 6/22/2018, all medical examiners listed on the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (National Registry) must create an account with login.gov to access their National Registry account. The use of login.gov is required to meet new National Institute of Standards of Technology requirements for secure validation and verification. By using login.gov, you will get an extra layer of security to help protect your National Registry account against security breaches and users will be able to utilize their login.gov account to sign into multiple government agency accounts.

Once you create a login.gov account, our system will link it to your National Registry account. Therefore, the information in your National Registry account will remain available. After your login.gov account has been linked to your National Registry account, you must use your login.gov email address, password, and security code each time you sign into the National Registry.

If you do not already have a login.gov account, you must follow the steps below to create a login.gov account to access to your National Registry account:

  1. Go to https://nationalregistry.fmcsa.dot.gov/ and select Sign in
  2. On the National Registry login page, select Transfer or Create Account
