An attorney or pro se participant that fails to register might not receive electronic notices from eCRB regarding activity in the added proceedings. 

Attorneys and other registered eCRB users must log in at least every thirty days in order to keep their accounts active so they will receive any notification of filings to which they are entitled. Users must also change their password every sixty days. Click here to register or log in.
