Review of the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act 2003 (Qld) – Discussion paper 2

The Department of Justice and Attorney-General (DJAG) is asking you to tell us how we can improve services delivered by the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages (RBDM) in Queensland. The legislation has not been reviewed since commencement.

Queenslanders have seen many technology and community changes and it is important that legislation is relevant to support our life events.

The aim of the second discussion paper, Registering life events—Functions and powers of the Registrar and the use and disclosure of information is to identify whether the functions and powers of the Registrar should be expanded or modernised and whether the provisions in the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act 2003 (BDMR Act) governing the sharing of life event information adequately protects individuals’ right to privacy while facilitating the use and disclosure of information for appropriate purposes.

We are seeking feedback to ensure that the BDMR Act, as the legislation that underpins so many of life’s major milestones, supports the delivery of efficient and modern RBDM services that meet the needs of the community. Please submit your feedback to us by:
