Can I certify documents

Can I certify copy documents?

A certified copy is a copy (often a photocopy) of an original document with an endorsement that is a true copy of the original. It does not certify that the original document is genuine.

Generally, Fellows (as commissioners for oaths) are able to certify documents. However, the person authorised to certify largely depends on the purpose of the document or the organisation seeking a certified copy. There is no statutory obligation on organisations to accept copies certified by a Fellow.
