Hello Product Council Members!
I would like to invite you to participate in this month’s OpenCRVS Product Council, where we will review Correct records processes where approval is required.
Amending a record (correcting a record) refers to an update being made to a record after registration has taken place, typically because the record contains incorrect information. Amendments are specified and stipulated in the law and are either administrative or judicial procedures. The law stipulates at which administrative level the correction must be made, depending on how much time has elapsed since the event in question was registered. There are a number of reasons for a record to be amended. Examples include material omissions, clerical errors, and judicial orders.
During the product council, we would like to better understand from your experience:
- What type of corrections do you allow? What are the most common types of corrections?
- Do you allow corrections to all fields?
- Who can make corrections to the record?
- What supporting documents are requested?
- In what cases is higher level approval required e.g. by a State Registrar?
- Describe a typical approval process.
Please reply to this message with your comments on how the process is working in your country.
You can also join us on Thursday 6th October 2022 at 9:00 am BST/ 1:30 pm IST/ 11:00 am EAT on this Zoom link please save the date!
