Bulletin – Commissioning and Notarizing Requirements

On May 6, 2020, the AUC issued Bulletin 2020-16: Requirements for Costs Claim Applications and Confidentiality Undertakings, which suspended the requirement to have a confidentiality undertaking witnessed. The suspension recognized that current restrictions in place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic could interfere with a participant’s ability to appear before another person for the purpose of having a document witnessed or sworn.

In recognition that there are other forms and documents filed with the AUC that contemplate the party executing it before a commissioner for oaths or notary public, the AUC announced it is suspending the requirement to have these forms and documents commissioned or notarized in light of the current and ongoing circumstances. The forms and documents must still be completed and filed when required on the applicable proceeding or as otherwise provided to the AUC.
