Whilst performing notarial activities, the notary is required to watch over proper protection of rights and fair interests of parties and other persons with respect to whom such activities may have legal effects. The notary is required to provide the parties with indispensable clarifications regarding the performed notarial activity. The notary has to refuse performance of a notarial activity inconsistent with the law. The notary has to keep circumstances of the case with which he/ she became acquainted on account of the performed notarial activities confidential.
