The authentication of the copies consists in the attestation of conformity with the original written at the end of the copy, by the authorized public official, who must indicate the date and place of issue, the number of sheets used, his name and surname, the title held as well as affix your signature in full and the office stamp. If the copy of the deed or document consists of several sheets, the public official affixes his signature in the margin of each intermediate sheet product authentication.
Authentic copies, total or partial, of deeds and documents can be obtained by any procedure that guarantees the faithful and lasting reproduction of the deed or document; they can be validly produced in place of the originals.
The authentication of the copies can be made by the public official from whom the original was issued or with whom the original is deposited, or to whom the document must be produced, as well as by a notary, chancellor, municipal secretary, or other official appointed by the Mayor.
In cases where the interested party must submit an authentic copy of a document to the administrations or managers of public services, the authentication of the copy can be made by the person in charge of the procedure or by any other employee competent to receive the documentation, upon production of the original and without obligation to deposit it with the proceeding administration. In this case, the certified copy can only be used in the ongoing proceedings.
What is needed
Documentation to be submitted
The document for which an authentic copy is requested must be presented in original.
It is not possible to authenticate if a simple copy or a certified copy is presented.
First, it must be explained why all actors in the supply chain should fight counterfeiting, diversion and illicit trade. The counterfeiting of drugs or products in general does not follow quality assurance standards or protocols (nor does it apply standard operating procedures or best manufacturing practices (GMP)). More often than not, counterfeit products can look aesthetically identical to the originals, especially now with the availability of 3D printing. They may also contain the main ingredients but add others to mask the true nature of the falsified product in terms of texture and purpose.
Other forms of counterfeiting are represented by the infiltration of mobile apps, landing pages and software (in particular for the authentication and verification of products) and their deceptive design for final consumers and main commercial partners. By scanning the codes attached to the final products, consumers are directed to a forged authentication page, which gives them the impression that they are visiting the website of the brand owner or a governance organization.
