Registered Architects are on the List!
No more chasing around to find a JP to witness your Stat Dec. Registered architects are now authorised witnesses.
Registered architects have joined the list of authorised witnesses for Commonwealth Statutory Declarations in Australia under the Statutory Declarations Regulations 2018. They join pharmacists, legal and medical practitioners and other upstanding professions in being able to witness Stat Decs under changes to the List of Authorised Witnesses.
For more information about the legalities of Statutory Declarations, see the Federal Attorney General Department’s Frequently Asked Questions about Statutory Declarations.
Note that this only applies for Commonwealth documents. The expanded list of authorised witnesses is not applicable to state-based Stat Decs.
