A birth certificate is a vital record which documents the birth of a child. The term “birth certificate” can refer to either the original document or a certified copy of or representation of the original record of birth.  Each country has different rules for citizenship governing births within its borders.  In the United States, a child born in any of the states, territories or possessions is instantly granted American citizenship, and a state/territory birth certificate regardless of the country of citizenship of the parents or the legal status of the parents in the United States.  In other countries, the laws are different depending on the citizenship of the parents or a single parent.   In some countries citizenship is also extended to a newborns across borders –the citizenship is issued by the country of citizenship of the parents.

Countries have been much more sensitive to accurately document births within their borders so they can meet the social needs of their own citizens and efficiently control their budgets. With porous borders and ease of travel, many countries are striving to protect their limited resources by issuing highly tamper evident birth certificates and cards with a strict documentation protocol.  Eurosign’s DRIVE Birth Certificate Module (BCM) is ideal for Bureaus of Vital Statistics/Records and can be modified to meet each country’s criteria for issuing a modern and virtually counterfeit-proof document with the capability to be verified instantly.  All documentation provided by parents, hospitals or other government agencies are scanned into DRIVE under the unique number issued to the newborn.
