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
