Colleagues may be interested to hear of recent developments in relation to
the review. I am the ACALG representative on the LACORS Registration
Services Policy Forum.

On 29 March the Government announced a change in the proposed legislative
programme. Instead of the original proposal for a single
Regulatory Reform Order to cover all the changes, there will now be two. The
Government intends to introduce the first Order before the
summer recess 2004, with provisions relating to the registration of births
and deaths and the organisational and structural changes
necessary to transfer responsibility for face-to-face registration services
to local authorities.

The presentation of proposals relating to marriage will be postponed till
early in the 2004/05 Session. This split is designed to ensure
that the momentum for reform is sustained whilst providing an opportunity
for the second Order to take account of Parliament's wishes
on Civil Partnership legislation.

GRO has drawn up, in association with LACORS, a document setting out the
key milestones in implementation. The first significant
date from an archival point of view is mid 2005 when the contract for
digitising the "historic" records should be let; this may be difficult
in practice since the second Regulatory Reform Order is not planned to be on
the statute book before November 2005. The document
envisages the data capture being completed by the last quarter of 2007. This
milestone will also have the effect of releasing the historic
records for local authorities to make their own arrangements for storage and
access.

The completion of the digitisation of records of the active completion is
expected by the third quarter of 2007. That will have two
significant effects for archivists: a) restrictions on access to various
fields in marriage records will then be enforced, since the public will
have digital access to the edited records; and b) local authorities may wish
to make new arrangements for storing registers away
from register offices.

The timetable document encourages authorities to "involve" archive services
when developing solutions to the issues of storage and
access. It is to be hoped that there will be constructive dialogue between
Registration and archive services well before then.

As you will appreciate, the timetable put forward is still outline at best,
as there is every likelihood of some slippage. There is also still
very little in the way of practical details of implementation. I will try to
keep colleagues informed of developments. If anyone has any
issues which they wish to raise please contact me.
