Evidence of eligibility.

(1) The qualified applicant must submit evidence of eligibility documents to the state or local registrar to prove they are eligible to receive a certification of birth, death, fetal death, or birth resulting in stillbirth.
(2) If the qualified applicant is listed as a party on the record, and their identity documentation provided in WAC 246-491-320 sufficiently links the applicant to the record, then evidence of eligibility is met.
(3) If the qualified applicant is not listed as a party on the record or the identity documentation does not sufficiently link the qualified applicant to the record, the following documentation may serve as evidence of eligibility:
(a) Copies of vital records such as certifications of birth, death, marriage, and divorce from this or another jurisdiction that link the applicant to the requested record;
(b) Copies of certified court orders from a court of competent jurisdiction linking the applicant to the record;
(c) Document or letter from title insurer or title insurance agent handling a transaction on behalf of the decedent;
(d) Document or letter from a government agency or courts stating the certification will be used in the conduct of official duties; or
(e) Other documents that link the applicant to the record as determined by the state registrar.
(4) For the purpose of this section:
(a) "Birth" includes delayed birth, but does not include birth resulting in stillbirth.
(b) "Stillbirth" means the same as fetal death as defined in RCW 70.58A.010.
