EOIR Provides Details Regarding eRegistration

"Due to Department of Justice security standards, attorneys and fully-accredited representatives who complete step one of the two-step eRegistration process have 90 calendar days to complete step two.  After 90 calendar days, pending account requests will be removed from the eRegistry.  Step one is submission of the online form, which can be found at https://portal.eoir.justice.gov.  Step two is photo identification verification at an immigration court or the Board of Immigration Appeals, information about which can be found at http://www.justice.gov/eoir/engage/eRegistry/courts-eRegistry.htm.  If a user’s pending account request is removed from the eRegistry, the user will need to complete step one again.  The 90 calendar day cutoff ensures the security and accuracy of the information stored in the eRegistry.  As a reminder, all attorneys and fully-accredited representatives who practice before EOIR must complete steps one and two of the process by Dec. 10, 2013." - EOIR, Sept. 18, 2013.
