The Government has issued the Decree No. 23/2015/ND-CP on February 16, 2015 on grant of duplicates from master registers, certification of copies from originals, certification of signatures and certification of contracts and transactions.
To the time limit for certification, the time limit for certification is within the day an agency or organization receives a certification request or the subsequent working day if the certification request is received after 15:00 hours. For request for certification of copies from different original papers or documents; originals having many pages; request for a large number of copies; or papers or documents with complicated contents difficult for examination and comparison for which a certification agency or organization cannot meet the time limit, the time limit for certification may be extended for another 2 (two) working days at most or longer under a written agreement with the certification requester.
If sending a request for grant of duplicates from the master register by post, the requester shall send certified copies of the papers specified in Clause 1 of this Article and 1 (one) stamped envelop clearly indicating the full name and address of the recipient to the duplicate-granting agency or organization.
This Decree takes effect on April 10, 2015.
