Public Notaries Act 1997 – Section 20 – Repealed Section concerning Barristers providing services as Notaries Public

This section has been repealed from the Public Notaries Act 1997 (NSW) by the Statute Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act (No 2) 2003 (NSW). Originally, the section inserted into the Legal Profession Act 1987 (NSW) an additional sub-subsection 171(1)(f1) which created an additional liability for Barristers providing notarial services in certain circumstances. Division 7, of which section 171 was part, concerned application to the Administrative Decisions Tribunal.

The Legal Profession Act 1987 (NSW) has itself been repealed and replaced with the Legal Profession Act 2004 (NSW). Chapter 4 of the current Legal Professions Act deals with complaints and discipline. Under section 501 of that Act, the conduct of Notaries Public is to be dealt with under the terms of Chapter 4 of that Act as well.

Sydney notarial services (mobile in Chatswood, Lane Cove, Artarmon and surrounds) can be offered to meet an individual’s or business demands, including the witnessing of statements, the authentication of materials, the taking of declarations, as well as the production of other notarial certificates that are intended to be used by foreign authorities, non-government organisations (NGO) or other private institutions situated outside the Commonwealth of Australia.
