Oregon Statutes - Chapter 432 - Vital Statistics - Section 432.140 - Application for delayed certificates.

(1) When a certificate of birth of a person born in this state has not been filed within one year after the date of birth, a delayed certificate of birth may be filed in accordance with rules of the State Registrar of the Center for Health Statistics. If a hospital fails to file a certificate of birth within one year after the date of birth, a certificate of birth may be filed as provided by rule of the state registrar. No delayed certificate shall be registered until the evidentiary requirements as specified by rule have been met.

(2) A certificate of birth registered one year or more after the date of birth shall be registered on a delayed certificate of birth form and show on its face the date of filing.

(3) A summary statement of the evidence submitted in support of the delayed registration shall be indorsed on the certificate.

(4)(a) When an applicant does not submit the minimum documentation required by rule of the state registrar for delayed registration or when the state registrar has cause to question the validity or adequacy of the applicant’s sworn statement or the documentary evidence, and if the deficiencies are not corrected, the state registrar shall not register the delayed certificate of birth and shall enter an order to that effect stating the reasons for the action. The state registrar shall advise the applicant of the right to appeal under ORS 183.480 to 183.484.

(b) The state registrar by rule may provide for the dismissal of an application which is not actively prosecuted. [Amended by 1983 c.709 §8; 1997 c.783 §19]
