A new format for certified copies

People reading a bounded book

We're updating the way we bind certified copies. Since December last year we’ve been working to make our certified copy process deliver a better product for the customer.

Past certified copies have come bound with an eyelet and ribbon style. As part of this new binding method certified copies will be thermally bound eliminating the need for eyelets and ribbon. They will now come as a bound book with the certified copy certificate and official seal.

From Monday 7 March 2016 certified copy booklets will contain:

  • a copy of the document to be certified 
  • a certificate of certification 
  • official Seal
  • signature of the delegate.

Certified copies of certificates can be ordered via our online services and include a fee.
