Marla,

I think you are reading it correctly.  But it is not clear to me if you
object to the removal of the requirement, or not.

I agree with you that it would be good practice for many providers to
maintain these registrations. However, I don't believe that there is still
a need for this as a policy requirement. There are many good practices that
are not required by policy. There is probably a need to document good
registration practices someplace, but I don't believe the NRPM is the place
to document things that are just good practice as opposed to actual
policy requirements.

Thanks.
