Public Notaries Act 1997 – Section 8 – Publication of Information on the Roll of Public Notaries

Under section 8 of the Public Notaries Act 1997 (NSW), the Admission Board will have the authority to publish certain identification information relating to the Notary Public. This information may include the name of the Notary Public, the name of the firm at which the Notary Public is employed or where he works, and the business address of that firm. This statutory provision is intended to give certainty as to the rights available to the Board in respect of information that it holds for Notaries Public in New South Wales. The section alters the legal position which would otherwise be governed under the general law of privacy.

Sydney notarial services (mobile in CBD, Broadway and surrounds) can be provided to meet a business’ demands, such as the witnessing of contracts, the authentication of documents, the taking of declarations, as well as the drafting of other notarial acts which are intended to be used by overseas authorities, non-government organisations (NGO) or other private institutions based outside the Commonwealth of Australia. If you are looking for a Sydney Public Notary, we look forward to hearing from you.
