(410 ILCS 535/8)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 73-8)
Each local registrar shall:
(1) Appoint one or more deputies to act for him in his absence or to
assist him. Such deputies shall be subject to all rules and regulations
governing local registrars.
(2) Appoint one or more subregistrars when necessary for the convenience
of the people. To become effective, such appointments must be approved by
the State Registrar of Vital Records. A subregistrar shall exercise such
authority as is given him by the local registrar and is subject to the
supervision and control of the State Registrar of Vital Records, and shall
be liable to the same penalties as local registrars, as provided in Section
27 of this Act.
(3) Administer and enforce the provisions of this Act and the
instructions, rules, and regulations issued hereunder.
(4) Require that certificates be completed and filed in accordance with
the provisions of this Act and the rules and regulations issued hereunder.
(5) Prepare and transmit monthly an accurate copy of each record of live
birth, death, and fetal death to the county clerk of his county. He shall
also, in the case of a death of a person who was a resident of another
county, prepare an additional copy of the death record and transmit it to
the county clerk of the county in which such person was a resident. In no
case shall the county clerk's copy of a live birth record include the
section of the certificate which contains information for health and
statistical program use only.
(7) Prepare, file, and retain for a period of at least 10 years in his
own office an accurate copy of each record of live birth, death, and fetal
death accepted for registration. Only in those instances in which the local
registrar is also a full time city, village, incorporated town, public
health district, county, or multi-county health officer recognized by the
Department may the health and statistical data section of the live birth
record be made a part of this copy.
(8) Transmit monthly the certificates, reports, or other returns filed
with him to the State Registrar of Vital Records, or more frequently when
directed to do so by the State Registrar of Vital Records.
(8.5) Transmit monthly to the State central register of the Illinois
Department of Children and Family Services a copy of all death certificates of
persons under 18 years of age who have died within the month.
(9) Maintain such records, make such reports, and perform such other
duties as may be required by the State Registrar of Vital Records.
