A legal document that is affirmed rather than being sworn under oath.
Origin: From statutory + declaration.
A statutory declaration is a legal document defined under the law of certain Commonwealth nations. It is similar to a statement made under oath, however, it is not sworn. Statutory declarations are commonly used to allow a person to affirm something to be true for the purposes of satisfying some legal requirement or regulation when no other evidence is available. They are thus similar to affidavits. Depending on jurisdiction, statutory declarations can be used for: ⁕Declarations of identity, nationality, marital status, etc. when documentary evidence is unavailable. ⁕Declaring the intention to change one's name. ⁕Affirming the provenance and nature of goods for export or import. ⁕Statements of originality for patent applications.
