The Office of the Public Guardian (Scotland) is in the process of developing a new version of their main website and in keeping with this the EPOAR website has been re-branded. Changes have been made to the layout and colour scheme and new features have been added.
The new features include:-

  • A menu bar in the Registration section that allows users to search for or create a new registration. This is in addition to the current create and search buttons on the Registration page.
  • Improvements to the wording on authorisation emails. The sender’s reference is now included where provided and also guidance on certifying deeds as true copies.

Welcome to EPOAR

The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) welcomes you to the Electronic Power of Attorney Registration (EPOAR) website. EPOAR is an electronic facility for the submission and payment of Powers of Attorney (POA) made under the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000. EPOAR is not a facility for you to draft your PoA. We will check the validity of POA deeds submitted via EPOAR but will not check data input by users.
