HB 1426 would allow a parent to request a certificate of birth resulting in stillbirth when the fetus had a gestation age of less than 20 weeks.

The bill would not require information concerning a birth resulting in stillbirth to be entered into the Indiana death registration system if the fetus had a gestational age of less than 20 weeks.

The bill specifies that a burial transit permit is required for the report of death and transportation and final disposition of a deceased individual. A copy of the burial transit permit must remain with the body or body parts until the final disposition of the body.
