An official document of evidence is required if the request for a change is submitted by a new owner, representative, licensee, usufructuary or pledgee or if the request is for cancellation of third party rights. Even if you make a request as a guest, you must submit a document of evidence. The document may be an express declaration by the owner or another document which declares the change.
The following documents are permissible:
- Declaration of assignment (available in German, French or Italian)
- Merger agreement
- Licence agreement
- Usufruct agreement
Please upload the document as a PDF file when using the ‘register changes’ online service.
As the owner or representative, you are fully authorised by law to request changes in the register and are not required to submit any document of evidence.
