New user?

Registration is free for hospitals and birthing centres.

To register, you need to provide:

  • Your details (name, business name and address, contact details)
  • Proof of your identity - details from one identity document issued by an Australian government (e.g. passport or driver licence). You don't need to get certified copies.

We will verify your details and identity before we email you your access details.

You'll need to register even if you used our previous online system for hospitals and birthing centres.

Larger organisations where more than one member will submit birth notifications will need to nominate a stakeholder representative who will then nominate stakeholder users. 

The stakeholder representative will complete the same registration process through the 'Register now' link below.

What you can do online

Our new system for registering life events - Registry Information Online - is now live. This means all BDM products and services are now available online.

Hospitals and birthing centres can:

  • Notify BDM of new birth notifications.
  • Reset your password or be reminded of your username.

Straightforward registrations are processed automatically, giving you faster turnaround times.

Bulk file upload is no longer available for birth notification data. However, for even greater efficiency, hospitals can develop a system-to-system interface to us. (Email support@bdm.vic.gov.au (External link) for more information).
