Notaries (Post-Admission) Rules

The Master of the Faculties is proposing to make new rules to replace the Notaries (Post-Admission) Rules 2009.

The new rules do not represent a radical change from the 2009 Rules but have been updated to take account of experience and the need to codify more clearly what is required.

If you have any comments on the draft rules, may we please have them by 14 December 2018. 

Comments should be sent to:

A copy of the draft of the Notaries (Post-Admission Training & Supervision) Rules is available here.
