GINA Guyana, Thursday, May 4, 2017

Minister of State, Joseph Harmon said that the Deeds and Commercial Registry Authority Amendment Bill 2017 is scheduled for debate at the next sitting of the National Assembly on May 8.

Minister Harmon made this announcement at his weekly post Cabinet-Press briefing at the Ministry of the Presidency.

This Bill will pave the way for the establishment of the Deeds and Commercial Registries’ authority board. Minister Harmon said that this governing body will ensure the proper and efficient performance of the functions of the Authority.

The Board usually consists of a Chairman, Registrar of Deeds and the Commercial Registry, a nominee of the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Communities, the Guyana Bar Association, the Guyana Association of Legal Professionals, and the private sector.

The Deeds and Commercial Registry is an independent body, which was established in 2013, to promote the efficient and orderly operation of the Deeds and the Commercial Registries.
