How to find out if someone is a co-decision-maker?

When we are notified about a co-decision-making agreement, we will review it and provide the person and their co-decision-maker with a certified copy of the agreement. This will confirm that the co-decision-maker has the legal authority to make certain decisions together with the person. The certified copy will be able to be requested by anyone who has dealings with the co-decision-maker.

We will keep a register of co-decision-making agreements.

Certain people and organisations, like banks, lawyers and doctors, will be able to search this register. Family members and carer may also ask to search to register if they have a good reason to do so. We will be able to confirm that an agreement is in place. We will also be able to give them a certified copy of the agreement.
