General information about Notary Public
A Notary Public assists private individuals by witnessing legal documents, signatures, and translations and by issuing endorsements (apostille).
An apostille is a certificate or endorsement issued for documents that will be presented in a foreign country; when properly witnessed and stamped by a Notary Public, these documents are considered exempt from the attestation requirement in other countries as outlined in the Hague Convention (Convention of 5 October 1961: Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents). Upon certifying authorized company signatories, proof in the form of an extract from the Swedish Company Registration Office (Bolagsverket) is required, showing who is authorized to sign for the company.
