3. A person may execute one or more parts of the advance directive or may designate an agent to act on his or her behalf. A registration agreement submitted by an agent must include a declaration that the agent is legally authorized to represent or act on behalf of the registrant to make decisions concerning the health care of the registrant.

If a registration card issued by the Secretary of State pursuant to subsection 4 is lost, stolen, destroyed or otherwise unavailable, a registrant may request a duplicate registration card or other access to the registration number and password of the registrant. To receive a duplicate registration card or other access, the registrant must provide the Secretary of State with sufficient information to identify the registrant on a request for registration access form.
6. A registrant shall keep the registrant's file in the Registry current.
7. The Secretary of State may, on an annual basis, send a notice to each registrant requesting the registrant to review and confirm that the information contained in the registrant's file in the Registry is current.
