Brief Summary

UK Trans Info has been made aware of a number of trans people having difficulties obtaining revised qualification or degree certificates after changing their name. When a trans person changes their name as part of their gender transition it is legally required that organisations issue new certificates in order to comply with the Equality Act 2010 and the Gender Recognition Act 2004. This does not require a Gender Recognition Certificate.

This document explains the legal position and provides guidance for trans people and for organisations. Trans people who are having difficulty getting their certificates reissued may wish to send a copy alongside their request.


UK Trans Info is run by volunteers and relies on donations from supporters in order to function. If you feel able to donate then please use the button below to make your donation. You will be able to choose how much you would like to donate (any amount is greatly appreciated) and if you would like it to be a one-off or a monthly donation.
