Births in New Zealand are required to be registered under the Births, Deaths, Marriages, and Relationships Registration Act 1995 (the Act). Birth registration provides a source of demographic information and other matters important for government and an official record of births that can be used as evidence of those events and of age, identity, descent, whakapapa, and New Zealand citizenship. That Act also regulates access to that information recorded and the provision and effect of certificates. The Act supersedes any former Act or former Adoption Act.

Birth records are administered and maintained in accordance with the Births, Deaths, Marriages, and Relationships Registration Act 1995 by the Department of Internal Affairs. The Act was passed by the New Zealand Parliament and received the Royal assent.

Birth records therefore belong to the New Zealand Government. Original birth documents do not get 'released' however as your email has shown you can get copies of them.
