Documents attested by Attesting Officers are broadly divided into the following types: declarations, certification and witnessing of execution of legal documents, certification of original and duplicate documents and certification of legal facts including company particulars and resolutions of directors and/or shareholders of companies. In issuing attested documents, the Attesting Officers must ensure that the attested documents do not violate Hong Kong and PRC law. In addition, the Attesting Officers must personally verify the authenticity and legality of the relevant documents.
