Share Article

Certified Paper documents can now be verified online and referred to in web-pages, online auction listings, online partner search pages and more.

SwissCertified provides a new platform that enables people to use their real world paper documents to build trust online.

Hans Wyssen, the system's inventor, explains: "We believe that documents hosted at are even more trustworthy than certified paper documents in possession of owners. With our system, documents are transmitted DIRECTLY to us by the public notary who certified them or the institution which issued them. This means that when you verify a document at it is as if the institute or the notary personally gave you the document. You can be sure that documents have not been tampered with by anyone, including the owner."

Having paper documents "SwissCertified" is simple: 1) print a coded transmittal sheet at, 2) get a notary to certify the document and fax it to SwissCertified. SwissCertified provides online document verification free of charge for 90 days, after which subscriptions can be extended or reactivated during a five year period.

Also, notaries and institutions which issue documents can use the SwissCertified platform to offer their customers online verification of documents they certify or issue.

The market for this new service appears to be limitless. Businesses can host their trust building certificates, permits, and customer testimonials at and refer to them on web pages, online auction listings, emails, faxes and hard copy sales literature. Persons looking for a job can host their certified diplomas and refer to them on their hard copy and electronic CV. Persons looking for a partner online can host their notarized photograph, marital status certificate or health certificate.
