Minnesota Registration & Certification System
The Minnesota Registration and Certification (MR&C) System is a statewide, web-based registration and issuance system. Authorized individuals enter, maintain and use birth and death data while system checks improve data quality and ensure data confidentiality.

To become an authorized user, the funeral establishment owner and new staff must complete and sign the MR&C Funeral Director or FH Staff User Agreement (PDF). The bottom of the agreement describes how to submit the form to the Office of Vital Records (OVR). New users receive MR&C log in information by email after the user account is created.
When a staff member with an MR&C user account is no longer using MR&C or has left employment at your establishment, email health.MRCAdmin@state.mn.us.
The Funeral Directors’ Handbook on Death Registration and Fetal Death Reporting is a resource that contains explanations about data fields and instructions useful for completing the fact of death portion of a death record.
