3. What if I need to replace a document? (Section 950)

The Registrar may accept a replacement for a document previously delivered only if the original filed document:

•   did not meet the requirements of proper delivery, (e.g. it was not signed); or
•   contained unnecessary material.

The Registrar must be satisfied that the person delivering the replacement document is the person who delivered the original document or is the company to which the original relates. The replacement document must also comply with the requirements for proper delivery. If you wish to file a replacement document, you must send the replacement document accompanied by Form EDF-RP01. The Registrar needs this so that he can link the replacement document with the original.1

In certain circumstances, the court may also order the replacement of a document.


1 Note: there is no obvious rationale for the UK failing to accommodate replacements online.
