Welcome to the CDR Online Credential Verification System!

The on-line verification system serves as a primary source verification of credentials issued by the CDR, and is consistent with The Joint Commission Standards for primary source verification.
It is the responsibility of the user to confirm the correct identity of the individual whose credentials are being verified on this on-line system to avoid confusion between two individuals with similar names.  In cases in which a practitioner is using a credential that cannot be verified, and is thus engaged 'misuse' of a CDR issued credential, the user can e-mail CDR at creidy@eatright.org

RDNs or RDs who are applying for Pennsylvania State Licensure should not use the CDR online verification system or certificate to complete their licensure application.  Please call CDR at 800/877-1600, ext. 5500 to request the Pennsylvania Licensure Verification Certificate.

Attention Licensure Boards and Employers: CDR has developed a separate on-line verification system for organizations to verify credentialed status for credentialed practitioners.  For more information click here.  Please note that disciplinary action cannot be verified using this system.  Please send these requests to ethics@eatright.org.

The CDR on-line verification system will provide credential information regarding status for the following credentials:

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) or Registered Dietitian (RD)

Nutrition and Dietetics Technician, Registered (NDTR) or Dietetic Technician, Registered (DTR)

Board Certified Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition (CSP)

Board Certified Specialist in Renal Nutrition (CSR)

Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD)

Board Certified Specialist in Gerontological Nutrition (CSG)

Board Certified Specialist in Oncology Nutrition (CSO)

Advanced Practice Certification in Clinical Nutrition (AP)

To search the on-line verification system, the user must enter the CDR registration identification number and the credentialed practitioner's primary state of residence. Although the CDR database may reflect both a primary and a secondary address, this system will only search the database using the primary address. If the state of residence does not match the primary address in the database, you will receive a message indicating "the state does not match primary address." Please be sure to cross-check the identification number and the practitioner's name.  If you note any discrepancies, please recheck the number and contact CDR at 1/800-877-1600 extension 5500.  You must also contact CDR to resolve any issue before taking any action.

In cases in which a practitioner is using a credential that cannot be verified, and is thus engaged 'misuse' of a CDR issued credential, the user can e-mail CDR at creidy@eatright.org.
