7. Statistical reporting
State and Territory offices are required to provide quarterly statistics on the number and type of notarial acts performed. The statistical report should be divided into four categories: authentications; Apostilles; bindings; and Certificates of No Impediment to Marriage.
The signature and seals database currently has a facility to record authentications and Apostilles, including binding, and Certificates of No Impediment to Marriage. We are working with IT developers to produce a report which will meet the needs of Canberra, State and Territory Offices and overseas posts to monitor management of this workload.
