Q&A: Submitting Reports

  1. Some entities are required to submit copies of NPDB reports to the appropriate state licensing board. Is it possible to do this electronically?

    Yes. The NPDB's Electronic Report Forwarding service may be used if the state board has agreed to accept electronic notices of actions. The reporting entity is responsible for selecting the appropriate state licensing board. In cases when a state licensing board declines to participate, or if a reporting organization prefers not to use this feature for submitting a report, the reporting entity remains responsible for providing a copy of the NPDB report to the appropriate State board.
