The Civil Partnership (Registration Abroad and Certificates)(Amendment) Order 2013

This Order may be cited as the Civil Partnership (Registration Abroad and Certificates) (Amendment) Order 2013 and comes into force on the 1st January 2014

This Order amends the Civil Partnerships (Registration Abroad and Certificates) Order 2005 to remove the requirement for registration officers (consular officers) to transmit certificates of overseas relationships to the Registrar General in England and Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland. Registration officers remain under an obligation to transmit certificates of consular civil partnerships to the Registrar General.

Article 3 ensures that any person whose certificate was transmitted before this service is removed may still obtain a certified copy of that certificate from the appropriate Registrar General upon payment of a fee.
