A donor is a person who is a donor for the purposes of a self-insemination procedure undertaken by the birth parent.
Any information provided to BDM identifying the donor is collected only for the purposes of ensuring the accuracy of the child’s birth registration. The donor’s details do not appear on the child’s birth certificate.
The donor should complete this statutory declaration, declaring that they are the donor for the birth parent.
If you can’t provide a statutory declaration from the donor, you can provide a separate statutory declaration declaring:
- that you are unable to provide a statutory declaration from the donor and the reasons for this
- any donor details (e.g full name, date of birth) known to you.
You can also provide any other documentation proving the donor’s intention to be a donor only, and not be recognised as your child’s parent.
