Explanation:
It's just a more long-winded way of saying birth certificate. When you have a child, you're required to register it.

agree  B D Finch: Strictly speaking, a British birth certificate does not certify that the birth had taken place, but that the birth has been registered. Given the dependence of one upon the other, the terms have always been used interchangeably.
