Q&A: Eligible Entities

  1. Can the NPDB certify or verify that an organization is eligible to report or query?

    No. Each entity must determine its own eligibility to participate in the NPDB and must certify that eligibility to the NPDB. NPDB officials reserve the right to review and verify all elements of the documentation submitted with a registration and also reserve the right to reject the registration if the entity is determined to be ineligible. Eligible entities are responsible for complying with all statutory and regulatory requirements that apply to them.
