2309.12 (C) (7) Space 9: Certification of Photocopied Documents
If the remitter intends to submit a photocopy or other reproduction of a signed document, the remitter must submit a sworn certification stating that the reproduction is a true copy of the original.
As discussed in Section 2309.10 (C) (2), this certification may be provided by completing space 9 of Form DCS. The certification must be signed by one of the parties to the document or an authorized representative of that party. The date provided in space 9 should be the date that the certification was signed (rather than the date that the original document was signed).
NOTE: If the remitter intends to submit a photocopy or other reproduction of a document that has been validated by or is on file with a public office, the reproduction must be submitted together with an official certification. The certification that appears on space 9 of Form DCS cannot be used for this purpose. For information concerning official certifications, see Section 2309.10 (C) (4).
