Lodging medical certificates of cause of death online is the best way to ensure the funeral director can accept the body and support the family.
If you have an urgent request, email email@example.com with your order number (if you have one) and details.
Registration is free for medical practitioners.
To register, you need to provide:
- Your details (name, business name and address, contact details)
- Proof of your identity - details from one identity document issued by an Australian government (e.g. passport or driver licence). You don't need to get certified copies.
We will verify your details and identity before we email you your access details.
You'll need to register even if you used our previous online system, Medical Practitioners Online.
What you can do online
Our new system for registering life events - Registry Information Online - is now live. This means all BDM products and services are now available online.
Medical practitioners can:
- Submit cause of death notifications
- Print a cause of death
- Reset your password or be reminded of your username.
Straightforward registrations are processed automatically, giving you faster turnaround times.
