Death Registration Training

A death certificate is a permanent record of the fact of a person’s death.  Oklahoma Law stipulates that a death certificate is to be filed within three days after death (63 OS 1-317(a)).  The death certificate is prima facie evidence of the fact of death and, therefore, can be introduced in court as evidence when a question about the death arises.
