30. Taking note of target 16.9 of the Sustainable Development Goals, the Committee recommends that the State party:
(a) Improve the efficiency of the registration process to ensure that information is accurate, particularly for births that take place outside of hospital facilities, and ensure the accuracy of registration details for babies born to young or unmarried mothers;
(b) Strengthen capacity of health personnel on the outer islands to ensure that all births are accurately recorded;
(c) Repeal the reregistration provision in the Legitimacy Act, which requires children born to unmarried parents to be reregistered as a “legitimate child” after the marriage of the parents;
(d) Consider ratifying the Convention relating to the Status of Stateless Persons and the Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness.
