(1) For each judgment of adoption entered by a court in this state, the court shall require the preparation of a report of adoption on a form prescribed and furnished by the State Registrar of the Center for Health Statistics. The report shall:
(a) Include such facts as are necessary to locate and identify the certificate of birth of the person adopted or, in the case of a person who was born in a foreign country, evidence from sources determined to be reliable by the court as to the date and place of birth of the person;
(b) Provide information necessary to establish a new certificate of birth of the person adopted; and
(c) Identify the order of adoption and be certified by the clerk of the court.
(2) Information necessary to prepare the report of adoption shall be furnished by each petitioner for adoption or the attorney of the petitioner. The Department of Human Services or any person having knowledge of the facts shall supply the court with such additional information as may be necessary to complete the report of adoption. The provision of such information shall be prerequisite to the issuance of a judgment of adoption.
(3) Whenever an adoption judgment is amended or annulled, the clerk of the court shall prepare a report thereof, which shall include such facts as are necessary to identify the original adoption report and the facts amended in the adoption judgment as shall be necessary to properly amend the birth record.
(4) Not later than the 10th day of each calendar month or more frequently, as directed by the state registrar, the clerk of the court shall forward to the state registrar reports of adoption, reports of annulment of adoption and amendments of judgments of adoption that were entered in the preceding month, together with such related reports as the state registrar shall require.
(5) When the state registrar receives a report of adoption, report of annulment of adoption or amendment of a judgment of adoption for a person born outside this state, the state registrar shall forward such report to the state registrar in the state of birth.
(6) If the birth occurred in a foreign country, except Canada, and the person is not a citizen of the United States at the time of birth, the state registrar shall prepare a certificate of foreign birth as provided by ORS 432.230. If the person was born in Canada, the state registrar shall forward the report of adoption, report of annulment of adoption or amendment of a judgment of adoption to the appropriate registration authority in Canada.
(7) If the person was born in a foreign country but was a citizen of the United States at the time of birth, the state registrar shall not prepare a certificate of foreign birth and shall notify the adoptive parents of the procedures for obtaining a revised birth certificate for the person through the United States Department of State.
