Registration Reminders

  • Once a completed registration application has been received, it can take up to four to six weeks to process. An application is considered complete once all required documentation has been received and verified. If any information is missing or incomplete, the expected timeline will be lengthened depending on the item(s) pending for submission. 

  • Registrants are asked to ensure that the contact information they provide is always accurate. The NLCHP primarily uses email communication to send newsletters, renewal reminders, audit notices, and other regulatory information. If the email address on file is incorrect, important information may be missed and/or, potentially, disclosed to the wrong person. Additionally, registrants are reminded to check their email on a regular basis so that important notices do not go unread.

Please note your registration deadline, as a late fee will apply if documentation is not complete. 

Online Registration Database 

NLCHP will be moving to an online registration database! Stay tuned
for all the details and implementation dates.
