Authorized vs Informational Certified Copy

In an attempt to stop the illegal use of vital records, and as part of statewide efforts to reduce identity theft, California law (effective July 1, 2003 for birth and death records and effective January 1, 2010 for marriage records) changed the way certified copies of birth, death and marriage certificate are issued.


Certified copies to establish the identity of a registrant can be issued only to authorized individuals, as indicated below.  All others will be issued Certified Informational Copies that are not valid to establish identity, and contain wording on the face of the document that states, "Informational, Not a Valid Document to Establish Identity."
