Change vital records

The process for making changes, or amendments, to vital records such as births or deaths varies depending on the type of change needed. The process also varies depending on how recently the record was filed.

Learn how to make changes to Oregon birth or death records.



Oregon Revised Statute 432 is the state law governing vital records. You may read its full text at the Oregon Legislature website, as well as review the Center for Health Statistics' PDFOregon Administrative Rules.
