Public Notaries Appointment Rules – Rule 5 – Process of Application

Under the provisions of Rule 5 of the Public Notaries Appointment Rules (NSW) a candidate for appointment must supply certain materials to the Executive Officer of the Board for the Board’s assessment. These documents will be considered by the Board in relation to the suitability and eligibility of the candidate for appointment as Notary Public.

The documents are listed in Rule 4, and include evidentiary material that the candidate is indeed a legal practitioner and has been one on the Roll of practitioners for an uninterrupted period of at least five years, that the candidate holds a current practicing certificate and has recently completed a “Notarial Practice Course” as well as evidence of any professional experience that may assist the Board in making a determination in his favour.
