Electronic Power of Attorney Registration

Welcome

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. OPG will check the validity of POA deeds submitted via EPOAR but will not check data input by users.


If this is your first visit to EPOAR you will need to register.


The Register New Individual User option should be selected if you are registering a POA on your own behalf or for a family member or friend.

The Register New Agent option should be selected if you are a professional registering POAs on behalf of a client.


If you have previously registered, please Login.


EPOAR has a facility to Verify Registrations for organisations that are presented with an electronically produced certificate of registration. Any queries regarding the validity of a certificate should be raised with OPG.
