All UK registered solicitors can certify documents for legalisation.

When a solicitor certifies a document with their signature or stamp, they declare that they have seen the original and that the document they have signed is a true copy of the original.

Certification does not confirm the contents of the document.

Only a notary public can notarise a copy of a document.

A notary verifies the information of the document and certifies the authenticity of the document’s content.

Notarisation is often the preferred or requested method to authenticate documents for overseas use.
