De Pinna provides notarial certification of all types of documents required by both private and corporate clients for use worldwide.
What does notarial certification mean?
- “Certification”, “notarisation”, “authentication”, “attestation”, are words frequently used where the services of a Notary are required.
- Most commonly notarial certification involves a Notary checking your identity and your capacity to sign a document, e.g. a Power of Attorney. If you are signing on behalf of a company or other legal identity, the Notary will also need to check your authority to act. Alternatively a Notary might be required to authenticate the authenticity of an official document, e.g. a Degree Certificate, or issue a certified copy of an original document, e.g. a Passport.
What is the Procedure?
- This can vary greatly depending on the document in question, the destination country in which it is to be used and whether you are a private individual or a representative of a company or other legal entity.
- Each situation is different and our Notaries have the expertise to advise in relation to the specifics of each case.
