A Commissioner for Oaths is an authorised person to witness the signing of formal legal documents such as statutory declarations, affidavits and more.

The Lord Chancellor appoints a person as a Commissioner for Oaths and gives them the power to administer oaths or take affidavits. All practising solicitors are automatically Commissioners for Oaths and have powers to administer oaths and witness affidavits.
