Review of the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act 2003 (Qld) – Discussion paper 3

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 third discussion paper, Registering life events—Registration and access is to look at life events registration, including the information required by RBDM to register life events and the information that appears on life event certificates, to ensure they continue to meet the community’s needs and expectations. The paper is also seeking feedback on ways to address any barriers to the registrations of births, and whether the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act 2003 (BDMR Act) could support the expanded use of online technology to make it easier for people to access RBDM services.

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:
