Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDM) Submissions

Have a say on proposals about access to Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDM) information.

NZHA members participated in the first phase, which included public submissions on a discussion paper published in January 2015. You can find out about both phases of the review online at:
