This Letter is used to apply for the Certified True Copy (CTC) of an organization's certificate of registration. A certificate of registration or incorporation is a single document issued by the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) upon incorporation.

The certificate bears the full name and the registration number of the registered company or organization. The document serves as proof of registration or incorporation and can be required in some transactions. But if the certificate is lost or destroyed, there is a need to obtain the CTC of the certificate. To do this, a director, proprietor, chairman, or another high-ranking officer of the company or organization should send this application together with other required documents to the CAC to request for the CTC of the certificate of incorporation. In other words, this document can be used only if the certificate of incorporation is lost or destroyed.
