Criminal Procedure Rules 2012

2.2 Authentication


Any document that is required by the Act or these rules to be filed, served, or issued must be authenticated by the person responsible for its content.


The person responsible for its content authenticates the document by—


signing and dating the document; or


in the case of any document in an electronic form, any electronic means that adequately identifies that person and the date of authentication.


However, an affidavit or other document required to be sworn must be signed and dated.


In the absence of evidence to the contrary, any document is to be treated as having been authenticated in accordance with this rule.
