Civil Partnerships Records Regulations 2016

Allows for people to obtain information on registered civil partnerships

  • 2016 No. 981

    These Regulations provide that information contained in an entry in the Registrar General's register of civil partnerships may be provided, upon request, to a person applying via the website, in personal document format. Regulation 2(3) and (4) state that an applicant must provide full addresses of both civil partners before receiving a record of that civil partnership which includes those addresses until the 50th year after the formation of the civil partnership, after which time this restriction no longer applies. This restriction mirrors that found in the Civil Partnership (Registration Provisions) Regulations 2005 (S.I. 2005/3178).
