Gender Reassignment Board


Welcome to the Gender Reassignment Board

The Gender Reassignment Board (the Board) was established under the Gender Reassignment Act 2000 (WA). The Board’s main function is to deal with applications from people who have undergone a gender reassignment procedure to be legally recognised as belonging to their new gender. If the person is successful in their application, the Board will issue a recognition certificate.

The Board is made up of the President and up to five members. The Board includes at least one medical practitioner, a person who has undergone a reassignment procedure, and a person with experience in equal opportunity matters.
