Welcome to Central Contractor Registration (CCR)

Central Contractor Registration (CCR) is the primary registrant database for the U.S. Federal Government. CCR collects, validates, stores and disseminates data in support of agency acquisition missions. Click here to learn more about CCR Policy and Background.

NOTICE TO ACTIVE REGISTRANTS IN CCR: A Trading Partner Identification Number (TPIN) is a password that is used to access your Central Contractor Registration (CCR) data. Vendors that become active in CCR are issued a TPIN (password) to access and maintain their data. Because of the sensitivity of this data, CCR recommends that you do not disclose your TPIN to anyone under any circumstances. (Full Security Notice)
