Special Witnesses and Substitute Signatories
On 30 April 2022, the Justice and Other Legislation Amendment Act 2021 (JOLA) commenced. JOLA made permanent many of the temporary measures which had been introduced during the COVID 19 emergency, including the capacity to remotely witness and/or electronically sign statutory declarations and affidavits under the Oaths Act 1867 (Oaths Act).
Fact Sheets have been created by the Department of Justice and Attorney-General to assist with understanding who can witness a statutory declaration and who can sign a statutory declaration as a substitute signatory.
