I accept that they have been accepted, but that is not what the guide says: Have a look here

As CIC states, authority varies by country:

Authority to certify international documents varies by country. Consult your local authorities.

Is the following helpful? :

https://www.gov.uk/certifying-a-document

I see that, in the UK, a teacher/dentist can certify docs (but they can't administer oaths).

If it were me, apart from a notary, personally, I'd use a solicitor, rather than any of the others mentioned, unless it was for a UK purpose (which yours isn't).

However, my husband recalls checking out a notary in London, attached to a solicitors who was very, very cheap (about 2 years ago). If he finds the link I will post it.


I think we need to remember there are two different activities that have been mentioned on this thread: administering oaths and certifying documents. In each case, CIC accepts/acknowledges that authority to perform either varies by country. However, in the UK, some professionals can perform one activity, but not the other and some professionals can perform both.
