I am qualified and licensed to work as a notary public in England and Wales.
If you would like to see the qualifications I hold as a notary public, please ask. These consist of
- the document which was given to me on the date I was admitted a notary (called a “faculty”); and
- the document which I receive every year which authorises me to work as a notary (“practising certificate”). This practising certificate is for the period 1 November in one year to 31 October in the following year.
Who regulates my work?
All notaries in England are regulated by the Faculty Office (known as the “front-line regulator”). For historical reasons the Faculty Office operates under the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Faculty Office contact details are:
The Faculty Office 1 The Sanctuary, Westminster, London, SW1P 3JT.
Telephone: 020 7222 5381 (Open 10.00am to 4.00pm on normal working days)
Do I have professional indemnity insurance?
I have professional indemnity insurance and also so-called fidelity insurance (both are a requirement in order for me to work as a notary public). For
- professional indemnity insurance, I am covered by the professional indemnity insurance of Anderson Law llp, the firm of solicitors I work for as a solicitor. At the date of writing, the insurer is International Insurance Company of Hanover SE.
- fidelity insurance, I obtain myself under a scheme run by the Notaries Society.
As I store and process personal data I am required to register with the Information Commissioner.
My registration number is Z1326497.
To check details of my registration visit the Information Commissioner’s website: . The search page is here, and then search for “Victor Woroner” in the name box.
What else do I do?
I also work as a solicitor with a niche intellectual property law firm (Anderson Law llp), specialising in intellectual property and commercial law. Part of work as a solicitor involves writing books for legal professionals. A list of the publications is here.
