Trade unions and employers' associations are required to send to the Certification Officer an annual return of their affairs and the Certification Officer is required to make these returns available to the public.

All annual returns for current trade unions and employers' associations are available for public inspection at the Certification Officer's premises: 22nd Floor, Euston Tower, 286 Euston Road, London NW1 3JJ between 9:30 and 16:30.  Please telephone 020 7210 3735 for an appointment before visiting.  There may be a charge payable.  Alternatively, Certification Office staff will photocopy relevant pages and mail them to you.  Please telephone the above number for more details of this service.

Annual returns for unions no longer in existence can be inspected at the National Archives in Kew, Richmond, Surrey  TW9 4DU.  Please contac the Certification Office to arrange viewing.
