Minnesota Registration & Certification System (MR&C)

Minnesota Registration & Certification System (MR&C)

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

Physicians and their designated staff (proxies) must be authorized users of MR&C to enter cause of death information.

To become a user, complete the Physician and Designated Staff User Agreement (PDF). The bottom of the agreement details how to submit the form to the Office of Vital Records (OVR). New users receive MR&C log in information by email after OVR creates the user account.

Please notify OVR at health.MRCAdmin@state.mn.us when you:

  • Change health care facilities
  • Change health care systems
  • Change your name
  • Retire
  • Don't work with MR&C any longer
