Section 3705.27 | Matching of birth and death records to protect integrity of vital records.


The director of health may match birth records and death records in accordance with written standards which he shall promulgate in order to protect the integrity of vital records and prevent the fraudulent use of birth records of deceased persons, to prove beyond a reasonable doubt the fact of death, and to post the facts of death to the appropriate birth record. Copies made of birth records marked "deceased" shall be similarly marked "deceased."
