Introducing Notice Document Vetting

In our latest addition to our COVID-19 response for registration services (see our full COVID Response Timeline here), we are implementing a new Notice Document Vetting feature which will facilitate the receipt of important documentation from celebrants online for faster verification.

How will Notice Document Vetting work?

With Notice Document Vetting applied, local celebrants will be able to upload scans and images of their essential documents before their scheduled appointment via a secured link.

Upon reserving a timeslot and completing the notice booking process, a link will be distributed to celebrants asking for documentation and evidence of the following:

  • Proof of address
  • Proof of nationality 
  • Parental consent form (if applicable)
  • Proof of marital status
  • Change of name documents (if applicable)

All items uploaded will be automatically added to the celebrant’s appointment booking within agenda for registrars. This will allow registrars to digitally review all essential documents prior to the booking, and have stored copies on hand for the appointment itself. From here, registrars will be able to simply verify the physical documentation provided during the appointment against the stored digital copies, reducing overall appointment time significantly.

What are the benefits to adding digital document vetting?

By adding the opportunity to upload verification documents prior to appointments, registration services will now be able to streamline how appointments are conducted. With documents becoming available at registrars convenience, staff will be able to reduce the time spent verifying documents as and when appointments happen, creating a more efficient process for all parties.

By prioritising appointment efficiency and speed, the latest addition to agenda will enable services to quickly and accurately complete appointments, while reducing the backlog for marriages and civil partnerships created by COVID-19.
