Guide for use:Help on this term

Parties to an adoption may apply for access to identifying or non-identifying information.

CODE 1 Application for identifying information

‘Identifying information’ is information, such as the original birth certificate (adopted persons) or the amended birth certificate (birth parents), which identifies the actual person about whom the information is being sought.

CODE 2 Application for non-identifying information

‘Non-identifying information’ does not identify the person about whom the information is sought; this can include age of birth parent(s) and place of birth.

Comments:Help on this termIn some jurisdictions, a person can seek both identifying and non-identifying information in a single application. This should be recorded as one application for identifying information and one application for non-identifying information.
