Delayed reports of live birth

  • rules


When a report of live birth of a person born in this state has not been registered within one year after the date of birth, a delayed report of live birth may be submitted in accordance with rules of the State Registrar of the Center for Health Statistics. No delayed report shall be registered until the evidentiary requirements as specified by rule have been met.


A certified copy issued as a result of a report of live birth submitted under this section shall indicate the delayed registration and show the date of the registration. The record of live birth shall contain a summary statement of the evidence submitted in support of the delayed registration.


All delayed reports of live birth shall be processed and registered at the Center for Health Statistics.


All certified copies of delayed registrations shall be issued by the state registrar.


A delayed report of live birth may not be registered for a deceased person.
(6)(a) When an applicant does not submit the minimum documentation required by rule of the state registrar for delayed registration or when the state registrar has cause to question the validity or adequacy of the applicant’s sworn statement or the documentary evidence, and if the deficiencies are not corrected, the state registrar, in the state registrar’s discretion, may refuse to register the delayed report of live birth and shall enter an order to that effect stating the reasons for the action. The state registrar shall advise the applicant of the right to appeal under ORS 183.484 (Jurisdiction for review of orders other than contested cases).


The state registrar by rule may provide for the dismissal of an application that is not actively prosecuted. [Formerly 432.140]
