When registering in the Centralized Contractor Registration (CCR) System, a temporary confirmation number will be assigned to you so that your application can be saved in the event you are unable to complete it during your initial online session. It is important that you write down your temporary confirmation number, as you must have it, along with your D-U-N-S number, to resume your application. Clicking "validate/save" will save the incomplete registration. A list of information you are missing will appear on the "Show Errors" list. Registrations-in-process are saved for up to 120 days for your convenience . Once your complete registration is submitted, the confirmation number becomes invalid. A Trading Partner Identification Number (TPIN) will replace it when the registration is active.

If your registration was submitted successfully then you will receive two letters via U.S. mail or E-mail. This first notice is to welcome you to CCR and will include a copy of your registration. Please make sure you review the registration for accuracy. The second notice contains your confidential Trading Partner Identification Number (TPIN). The TPIN is sent separately for security reasons. Receipt of your TPIN not only confirms that you are successfully registered in CCR, it is required to make or request any changes or updates to your active registration. The TPIN is your confidential password, to change your CCR information . The TPIN is not to be used on contracts or other government paperwork. In addition to receiving these letters, you can verify the status of your registration on-line by visiting CCR's homepage at www.ccr.gov and clicking on "Search CCR". When prompted, enter your DUNS number and click "Search". The registration status is located at the top of the page.
