The Maltese Notariat is among the oldest in Europe, with the first Maltese Notary dating as far back as the 15th Century. Certainty, impartiality and independence have been the elements intrinsically associated with the Profession over the centuries. It is our duty to take the Profession from strength to strength through up-to-date knowledge, improved efficiency and untainted transparency, reassuring the private citizen and society in general that the Notary is still the beacon of legal certainty and security.
