Become an EDRS User
If you would like to become an EDRS user, please review each of the steps below. Within each step, there are hyperlinks that you can click on, with either additional information, or forms to complete. Please review each section, and complete the applicable forms to become an EDRS user.
Step One: Register for MILogin
To access EDRS, you will need to register for a State of Michigan MILogin account. Step by step instructions on how to sign-up for the system are below:
Step Two: Complete a Security Agreement
The Security Agreement is mandatory for all EDRS users. Fax completed security agreements to the State of Michigan Vital Records Unit at (517) 335-9513. You need a completed security agreement for every facility that you will be working at. For example, if you have two facilities that you are affiliated with, you need to complete two security agreements, one for each facility. Fill out the Security Agreement that fits your role. Note: Local Clerks need to request security agreements from the Vital Records Office directly.
Step Three: Request Fingerprint Scanner
In the EDRS application, your fingerprint is required to log into the system. In addition, your fingerprint replaces your written signature that is required to certify a record. The State of Michigan Vital Records Division provides the fingerprint scanners to you at no cost. You must request scanners by filling out this form and faxing it to the state. The fingerprint scanners are not person specific, they are computer specific. For example: if you only have one computer at your facility, you only need one fingerprint scanner. Fax completed form(s) to: (517) 335-9513.
