The main task of notaries is drawing up  public deeds, which include notarial records, notarial minutes and notarial certificates. A public deed drawn up by a notary proves the authenticity of what it determines or confirms. At the request of a client, notaries are also authorised to draw up private deeds and represent clients in non-contentious proceedings before courts and in unquestionable cases before other state authorities if cases are directly related to a notarial deed drawn up by a notary.

A notary as an impartial and objective legal adviser gives conscientious and fair advice to all participants in a legal transaction on the right way to attain their goals. A notary must protect confidential information on persons, facts and legal relationships as a secret.

A notary may be a person who is appointed to a vacant notarial post by the minister responsible for justice and is entered in the List of Notaries with the Chamber of Notaries of Slovenia.
