CODE 1    Information application

Information applications may be for access to 'identifying 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. '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.

CODE 2   Contact and identifying information veto

A veto is a legally binding process by which a person can prevent another party to the adoption from making contact and/or restrict the release of identifying information about themselves.
