Public Notaries Appointment Rules – Rule 10 – Change of Details: Obligations of Public Notaries

It is important that all the details supplied to the Registrar by an appointed Notary Public be kept up to date. Accordingly, processes have been put in place to formalise the provision of notice in the event any details have changed since the Registrar was last notified. Under Rule 10 of the New South Wales’ Public Notaries Appointment Rules, a Public Notary “shall” (i.e. must) “notify the Registrar in Form 5 of any change of address, firm or other particulars within one month of such change.” The text and format of Form 5 is contained in a de facto first schedule to the Rules and can be reproduced when required.
