CAC To Stop Issuing Original Certificates To Applicants

The Corporate Affairs Commission is planning to stop issuance of paper documents ahead of the commencement of the new CAMA 2020.

The Commission’s Registrar General, Garba Abubakar, said this on Friday on NTA News 24 during the “CAC Weekly” program, according to a statement seen by THE WHSTLER.

Abubakar who is also the Chief Executive Officer of the CAC, disclosed that the commission will issue e-certificates with QR Codes to enable customers print their certificates.

The CAC boss said the Commission will also cease to issue any paper document to customers, adding it was in accordance with data privacy policy.

He added, “Upon take-off of the new software, the Commission will no longer issue Certified True Copies to individuals.”

A certified true copy  of the CAC document is the  verified and certified document which is stamped and signed as a true copy of the original document.

The CAC said it will instead replace the CTCs with “certified extracts of Companies data for protection.” The certified extract will be delivered over the internet in electronic form.

The Commission pledged to ensure adequate public sensitization on its newly developed software designed to ensure successful take-off of the new CAMA 2020.

CAC also assured that the software is user friendly and embedded with adequate guidance notes for customers.
