WHAT MUST BE DONE BEFORE THE CHAMBER CAN CERTIFY DOCUMENTATION

Signature Authority

A complete list on Company headed paper is required of all company signatories authorised to sign documents on behalf of your company. Unless the applicant is the sole trader proprietor, signatories cannot authorise themselves. We recommend having more than one person to sign documents in case of the principal being away at the time of application . It is necessary to keep the Chamber informed of any changes to the above listings, as Documents with unauthorised signatures cannot be accepted.

Formal Undertaking

A Formal Undertaking , must be completed and signed by a Director, Company Secretary or person authorised to act and sign on behalf of your company. The Chamber cannot issue documents until a signed Formal Undertaking has been received . A suggested text for the Formal Undertaking can be found at the end of this section.
