You will need to create a new password (at least 5 characters). Just save your information and close your browser. You will be sent an activation notice via email.
  • If you do not have an email address, please use your [email protected] as your registration ID. This will be your new ID for the website. If you obtain an email at a later date, just edit your profile once you log in. Note: if you use a faux email, you will not receive receipts for your registration or orders and will need to ask the NOM via paper mail to send you a physical copy of your receipts.
