New Regulatory Changes Concerning Death Certificate Amendments


We are happy to announce that effective June 24, 2016, personal information on death certificates will be allowed to be amended without a court order up to one year after the filing of the original death certificated.

This is a result of amendment made to KAR 28-17-20 by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment’s, Office of Vital Statistics at the request of the KFDA. Previously such amendments could not be made after 6 months, without a court order.

For amendments to death certificates after one year from date of filing, do not hesitate to contact KFDA for assistance in preparing court documents to make such changes.
