Integrated Birth Certificate (IBC)

For the first time in NSW adopted people have the option to have both their birth and adopted families included on a birth certificate. An Integrated Birth Certificate (IBC) means adopted people can be issued with two birth certificates - the existing post adoptive certificate which includes only the details of the adoptive family and an integrated birth certificate, inclusive of the birth and adoptive families.
