In these situations, the Legal Profession Admission Board may provide what is known as a Certificate of Current Appointment, a basic template and format of which is contained in Form 4, in the first schedule of the Public Notaries Appointment Rules. The Certificate will be executed by the Registrar of Public Notaries and available to the requesting notary under a specific fee that is set and periodically reviewed by the Board.
