What is certified identification?
A 'certified copy' of an original document is a copy that has been verified as being a true copy of an original document. Please refer here for a list of persons who may certify copies of original documents. The certifier will write or stamp the copy with the words: “Certified to be a true copy of the original seen by me.” They will sign and date the copy, and write or stamp their:
- personal or professional address, and
- qualification as an authorised certifier.
If there are multiple pages to the copy, the certifier will sign or initial and number all pages.
