Birth Certificate Verifications for State (other than NY) and Federal Government Agencies

The NYC Office of Vital Records database is not accessible to other government agencies.

The National Association for Public Health Statistics and Information Systems (NAPHSIS) has developed an electronic system that allows immediate confirmation of the information on a birth certificate, regardless of the place or date the certificate was issued.

Authorized Federal and State agency users can search records throughout the country to verify birth certificate contents and request electronic certification.

You can call (301) 563-6001 for more information.
