Nev. Admin. Code § 440.095 - Birth certificate for homebirth: Determination of sufficiency of documentary evidence; requirements for documents submitted as evidence of homebirth

1. The State Registrar shall determine whether the documentary evidence submitted pursuant to subsection 2 of NAC 440.094 is sufficient to warrant the filing of a birth certificate for a homebirth. The State Registrar may deem any documentary evidence as insufficient and may conduct an independent investigation of a homebirth at any time.
2. Any document submitted as evidence of a homebirth must be authenticated as being an original document or a copy of a verifiable document. The State Registrar may accept documents not otherwise authenticated if accompanied by an affidavit submitted by the applicant declaring the authenticity of the document or the applicant's belief in the truth of its contents.
3. Documents that show erasures or alterations must not be accepted as evidence of a homebirth. Where an applicant for a birth certificate for a homebirth has been unable to provide valid documentary evidence, a complete statement of the facts and the reason for the absence of such evidence must be noted on the record of birth of the child of the applicant.
