What is a validated copy?

A validated copy of your diploma or certificate is a copy that carries an original stamp and signature or initial from the programme concerned or from a notary within the European Economic Area.

The stamp and signature or initial declare the content of the copy to be identical to the original. The BIG-register requires a validated copy of your diploma or certificate so that we have a document with the required validation marks.

Educational institutions have agreed to issue one or more validated copies of diplomas and certificates.
