The date of implementing this control measure will be the 25th August 2011.

The Power of Attorney must be commissioned by the applicant indicated on form CoR 9.4.
          • Failure to comply with these requirements will result in the application being rejected.
            • Please note:
              • - Every customer is kindly reminded to keep their Customer Code PIN confidential.
                • - The New Companies Act makes provision for an official transfer of a reserved name through use of a form CoR 11.1.
