Do I need a certified copy of a document and how do I get one?

If you bring the original or original certified copy of the documents to any IMB branch, we will copy them and return the originals to you.

If you cannot attend an IMB branch then you will need to provide original certified copies of the documents.

To obtain a certified copy you will need to take the original document and a photocopy of it to a Certifier who will confirm that the copy is a true and accurate copy of the original. They will need to certify the copy with the following words:

‘I certify this to be a true copy of the document shown and reported to me as the original.’

This certification must be printed on the copy either using a stamp or handwriting in ink and followed with their handwritten details:

  • Signature
  • Date
  • Full name
  • Title
  • Registration number (if any).
