​Changes and corrections

There may be occasions when you need to change the registered details on a certificate. If you believe an error has been made on your certificate, you can apply to have it corrected.

Making a correction isn't the same as making a change to a certificate. A different process for correcting a certificate and changing a certificate applies.

Corrections are classified as administrative errors such as:

  • Spelling mistakes

Changes may include:

  • Changing your name or your child's name
  • Adding a parent to a birth certificate
  • Modifying information that was incorrectly supplied at time of registration
