S.C. Code Regs. 61-19.1100.1106 - Date of Birth Amendments to Live Birth Records

Current through Register Vol. 46, No. 3, March 25, 2022

A. The date of live birth cannot be corrected to a date that is after the date the live birth record was registered.
B. The date of live birth may be corrected up to 30 calendar days with a certified copy of the record from the hospital of birth or with two supporting documents provided that date is not after the date the live birth record was registered. At least one of the documents must have been created within 90 calendar days of the alleged date of live birth.
C. Other administrative corrections to the date of live birth may be made provided that a minimum of three documents adequately support that the registrant has consistently used the date from childhood and the change does not make the live birth date after the date the live birth record was registered. At least one of the documents must have been created within seven years of the alleged date of live birth. The change cannot be made if that change would conflict with any live birth record registered in the Bureau of Vital Statistics for other children of the same mother.
