New Rules for Vital Records (effective July 1, 2019)

The new rules for Vital Records established by Act 46 (link is external) intend to bring Vermont in line with best practices to enhance the safety and security of vital records and provide greater protection against identity theft. They will also streamline processes for greater efficiency by clarifying who is responsible for records and how records are to be created, stored, copied and shared. The new rules were developed from recommendations by the Vital Records Study Committee (link is external) and testimony from a wide variety of stakeholders, including town clerks and members of the public. The new changes go into effect on July 1, 2019.
