The California notarial certificate (certifying copies of power of attorney) is to be completed by a notary public upon the examination of a duplicate power of attorney form. The certificate confirms that the notary has examined the reproduction and that it is complete and accurate. A certified, duplicate power of attorney form holds the same authority as the original document and may be used to the same effect.
