50 <h2 id="g0.1">Preliminaries </h2>
51
52 <p>
53 This CAcert sub-policy extends the Organisation
54 Assurance Policy ("OAP") by specifying how the CAcert Organisation
55 Assurance Program ("COAP") is to be conducted by the assigned
56 Organisation Assurer ("OA") under the supervision of the Assurance
57 Officer ("AO") for entities within the defined scope.
58 </p>
59
60 <h2 id="g0.2">Scope </h2>
61
62 <p> This sub-policy is applicable to:
63 </p>
64 <ul>
65
66 <li>Organisations registered in Europe with an
67 official Trade Office Registry (CAcert "Approved Registry", also denoted
68 as "Registry").
69 </li>
70 </ul>
71
72 <p>
73 <i>Approved Registries</i> are tabled in
74 paragraph Appendix 1 of this sub-policy.
75 <br>
76 The table in Appendix 1 will denote for every Approved Registry a date of full acceptance (<strong>Registry Entry Draft</strong>
77 status). Before that date the Registry entry is accepted as operational
78 similar in effectiveness with a policy in DRAFT as defined in the
79 Policy on Policy document.
80 Addition of new Registry entries is by means of the routine Policy on
81 Policy process,
82 and is controlled by the Policy email list group, on submission by
83 Organisation Assurer.
84 </p>
85 <p>
86 Registries subjected to acceptance as Approved Registry are tabled in
87 paragraph Appendix 2. Appendix 2 is not a formal part of this
88 sub-policy.
89 </p>
90
91 <h2 id="g0.3">Requirements </h2>
92
93 <p>
94 This section describes any scope-specific requirements that are not
95 otherwise defined in the Organisation Assurance Policy (OAP).
96 </p>
97
98 <h3 id="g0.3.1">Organisations </h3>
99 <p></p>
100
101 <ol style="list-style-type: lower-alpha;">
102
103 <li>The organisation must be registered with an Approved Registry.</li>
104
105 <li>The Approved Registry must have a mandate to
106 register certain types of organisations (e.g. private companies, clubs
107 Societies &amp; Associations, partnerships, cooperatives, mutual
108 societies, foundations, etc.)
109 </li>
110 </ol>
111
112 <p></p>
113
114 <h3 id="g0.3.2">Unincorporated Organisations </h3>
115
116 <p>
117 <strong>Registered Names.</strong>
118 Where an approved Registry specifically maintains a register for
119 local entities that trade without formal incorporation,
120 the Registry entry will present independent evidence of the
121 name, as demanded by
122 <a href="http://www.cacert.org/policy/OrganisationAssurancePolicy.php#5">OAP#5.d</a>.
123 This may apply to
124 organisations such as
125 Sole Traders,
126 Doing-Business-As traders (DBAs),
127 Partnerships,
128 Church and Religious groups,
129 etc.
130 </p>
131
132 <p>
133 Such entities have differing legal statuses
134 with different liabilities.
135 The named entity may not be capable of legally becoming
136 a Member of CAcert,
137 <i>independently and separately from the individuals within</i>.
138 The Organisation Assurer (OA) must then take care to identify which individuals
139 are Members, and which are therefore the natural legal
140 entities behind the names.
141 </p>
142
143 <p>
144 The general standard for assurance of an unincorporated entity
145 with a Registered Name is that the result is
146 equivalent to assurance of an individual Member, or Members,
147 with the addition of the Registered Name.
148 </p>
149
150 <p>
151 There is no limit to the number of Registered Names that
152 a Member may have.
153 </p>
154
155 <p>
156 <b>Foreign Entities.</b>
157 <br>
158 Where a local Registry requires foreign entities to register,
159 this registration may be used for Organisation Assurance.
160 <br>
161 <i>
162 For example: companies are frequently incorporated in the United Kingdom,
163 but operated primarily in another European country.
164 These foreign entities may require to register locally
165 and submit financial and/or yearly reports, extracts of home documents,
166 reports from professionals such as accountants, etc,
167 to authorities in the operating country.
168 </i>
169 </p>
170
171 <h3 id="g0.3.3">Records</h3>
172 <p>
173 Records supplied by the Registry must be one of the following forms:
174 </p>
175 <ol style="list-style-type: lower-alpha;">
176
177 <li>
178 Formal originals on paper,
179 where they are extracted from the Registry
180 in an independent manner by the OA;
181 </li>
182
183 <li>
184 Digital statements from an online service provided by the Registry,
185 acquired by the Organisation Assurer by the OA
186 in an independent manner;
187 </li>
188
189 <li>
190 Historical supplemental documents may be accepted
191 where it can be shown that
192 material changes have not been made
193 (e.g., via absence of subsequent
194 submissions in official document listings).
195 Such acceptance should be applicable to the particular
196 jurisdiction, as documented by the Organisation Assurer,
197 and under any process he determines.
198 </li>
199 </ol>
200
201 <p>
202 The set of records supplied by the Registry is called the Extract.
203 </p>
204
205
206 <h2 id="g0.4">The Trade Office Registry </h2>
207
208 <p>
209 Approved Registries follow the European style of
210 Chambers of Commerce (e.g Chambers of Commerce in continental Europe,
211 Companies House in the United Kingdom and Ministry of Justice, Finance,
212 or Commerce in Eastern Europe).
213 </p>
214
215 <h3 id="g0.4.1">Criteria for acceptance of a Registry </h3>
216 <p>
217 An Organisation can be accepted for Assurance under this policy if
218 registered with a formal Trade Office Registry.
219 The criteria for an Approved Registry is:
220 </p>
221 <ol style="list-style-type: lower-alpha;">
222
223 <li>The Registry follows the general model of
224 <i>Trade Offices</i>
225 and thus is a formal authority for dealing with local trade matters affecting organisations;
226 </li>
227
228 <li>The Registry is formally
229 empowered to register corporate entities
230 (organisations)
231 under national law;</li>
232
233 <li>The Registry has a reliable search facility service
234 that provides reliable documentary evidence of the
235 registration entry of an organisation.
236 <i>The service may carry costs which are reimbursed from the organisation
237 applicant</i>;</li>
238
239 <li>The Registry (or, its search facility)
240 can provide an Extract of the registration of the entity,
241 below.
242 </li>
243 </ol>
244
245
246 <h3 id="g0.4.2">Extracts</h3>
247 <p>
248 The Extract is the set of records provided by the Registry.
249 The Extract is to include the following information:
250 </p>
251
252 <ol>
253
254 <li><i>Full name</i> of the legal entity,</li>
255
256 <li><i>Representative</i>(s) of organisation (e.g. Company, Partnership, Sole Trader),</li>
257
258 <li><i>Type</i> of organisation,</li>
259
260 <li><i>Location</i> (which must be within the area the Approved Registry is responsible for),</li>
261
262 <li><i>Identifier</i> or number, a unique registration id within Registry.</li>
263
264 </ol>
265
266 <p>
267 Organisation Assurance
268 is available to any active entity which can provide the above Extract.
269 </p>
270
271 <h2 id="g0.5">Assurance Process </h2>
272
273 <h3 id="g0.5.1">In general</h3>
274
275 <p>
276 The Organisation Assurer should take note of the following:
277 </p>
278 <ol style="list-style-type: lower-alpha;">
279
280 <li>Each Organisation Assurance is for one legal entity only, but may include multiple names (e.g. trading names);</li>
281
282 <li>The Organisation Administrator (O-Admin) must be an Assurer and must be delagated by the Applicant;</li>
283
284 <li>All organisations must be verified by Extract from an Approved
285 Registry. The Organisation Assurer may conduct a Registry check
286 (search).</li>
287
288 </ol>
289 <p></p>
290
291
292
293 <h3 id="g0.5.2">Process requirements for the Organisation</h3>
294 <p>
295 For legal entities requesting Organisation Assurance under this subsidiary policy:
296 </p>
297 <ul>
298
299 <li>The <i>Representative</i> must be duly authorised to sign on behalf of the organisation, and may be:
300
301 <ol style="list-style-type: lower-roman;">
302
303 <li>
304 The Secretary as verified in the Extract.
305 This is the preferred and best option;
306 </li>
307
308 <li>
309 A full Director of the managing or Executive board,
310 as verified in the Extract;
311 </li>
312
313 <li>
314 Any other Representative must prove that
315 they are duly authorised to sign on behalf of
316 the entity (e.g. via explicit written delegation or under organisation bylaws and rules).
317 This will require due diligence to be conducted by the Organisation Assurer,
318 to the standard and/or for approval
319 by the Organisation Assurer. </li>
320 </ol>
321 </li>
322 </ul>
323
324 <h3 id="g0.5.3">Process requirements for Individuals </h3>
325 <p>
326 For Individuals requesting Organisation Assurance under this subsidiary policy:
327 </p>
328 <ol style="list-style-type: lower-alpha;">
329
330 <li>The individual Member must be a CAcert Assurer;</li>
331
332 <li>The individual Member may act as her own Organisation Administrator.</li>
333 </ol>
334 <p></p>
335
336
337 <h3 id="g0.5.4">Process requirements for Partnerships </h3>
338 <p>
339 For Partnerships requesting Organisation Assurance under this subsidiary policy:
340 </p>
341 <ol style="list-style-type: lower-alpha;">

343 <li>The Partners must be verified via the Extract;</li>
344
345 <li>The applying Partner (signatory) must be an CAcert Assurer;</li>
346
347 <li>
348 Where the Applicant is not the managing Partner, further due diligence should be conducted
349 (e.g. verification that the role and title of the Applicant is suitable).
350 <i>If in doubt approval should be obtained from each of the Partners who should be individually Assured.</i>
351 </li>
352 </ol>
353 <p></p>
354
355 <h3 id="g0.5.5">Application Form: CAcert Organisation Assurance Programme (COAP) Form </h3>
356 <p>
357 On the CAcert Organisation Assurance Programme Form (COAP Form),

367 <li><i>Type</i> of entity that is registered, according to the classification created by the Registry.</li>
368
369 </ol>
370
