Can I place a notice?

You can place a notice in The Gazette, which is an official public record, if you are a registered and verified person acting in an official capacity, with the authority to create an official record of fact.

Here are some examples of people and organisations that are authorised to place notices:

  • Insolvency practitioners – who are appointed by the court to place notices relating to personal or corporate insolvency.
  • Solicitors – who are appointed by the court to place notices related to personal or corporate insolvency, or who are appointed as executor of a will.
  • Chancellor or the exchequer – to advertise the resignation of an MP.
  • The Bank of England – to advertise the recall of a bank note.
  • District councils – making a proposal to make a regulation under the Road Traffic Acts.
  • Members of the public – if you are an individual acting as executor of a will and wish to place a notice supported by a grant of probate or letter of administration.

Whichever type of notice placer you are, you will need to register before you can place a notice and additional checks will be carried out to ensure that you are authorised to place the notice.

Notice placers are solely responsible for assuring the validity and accuracy of the notice that they place.

Before you register, you can refer to the list below, which shows the different notice placers and the notice codes that they are authorised to place (a full list of notice codes can be found here). Once approved, you can then go on to submit your notice.

Other validation checks may be required to ensure that the notice is accurate, and that the legal, statutory and/or procedural requirements of the notice have been met. For example, our customer services team may request supporting documentation, such as a court order, before you can submit your notice for publication.
