Governor Carney signed Senate Bill 69 (SB 69) into law on March 30, 2021, mandating the medical certification of death be done electronically. Anyone who certifies death certificates must register to use the Delaware Vital Events Registration System (DelVERS), which is utilized to register all vital events. A death certificate can be certified anywhere a certifier has access to a computer.
To register to use the DelVERS, contact the Delaware Health Statistics Center (DHSC) at (302) 744-4541 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request forms or access forms below. When you complete the forms, you can forward to the above email address or fax to (302) 736-1862. Once DHSC has registered your paperwork, you will receive an email with a passcode, pin number, website link, and the Medical Certification Quick Reference Guide. DHSC also offers one-on-one or group Skype training. Contact DHSC for further assistance as required.
