These Regulations create and control the Gender Recognition Register in Northern Ireland. This register is used to produce new birth certificates for those who have a full Gender Recognition Certificate.

Explanatory Notes

These Regulations make provision for entries to be made in the Gender Recognition Register and the marking of existing birth register entries once the Registrar General for Northern Ireland receives a copy of the full gender recognition certificate under section 10(1) of the Gender Recognition Act 2004.

The Regulations provide for an entry in the Gender Recognition Register to contain information that corresponds with the information recorded in the applicants existing birth record, apart from the new name and gender which will be obtained from the gender recognition certificate.
