Who should register

All businesses and professionals who deal with BDM need to register

Registration is required for businesses and professionals who, as part of their work:

  • Submit birth, death or marriage data to us - for example hospitals, medical practitioners, independent midwives, marriage celebrants and funeral directors.

BDM can only act on notifications and/or requests from registered users. This protects the reliability and security of our state's records.
