Inspection of files, issue of copies of documents
Public documents may be inspected by anyone, and copies may be requested for a fee.
Inspection of files and copies may be requested by filing the relevant form at our Office.
Before the inspection of files we suggest that you make an appointment
- in pending cases with the designated examiner;
- in terminated cases at our Client Service.
Upon request we can ensure file inspection electronically, via the E-Dossier service.
