New COVID-19 regulations: Witnessing legal documents remotely – Justices of the Peace factsheet
Justices of the Peace (JPs) are volunteers appointed by the Governor of New South Wales. The primary role of a JP is to witness a person making a statutory declaration or affidavit, and to certify copies of original documents. JPs come from all sections of the community and are available across NSW.
New JP Handbook
A new edition of the JP Handbook is expected later in 2021. If you purchase a copy of the current edition after 1 July 2021 then the Department will automatically send you a complimentary copy of the 2021 Edition.
