Article 17 - Change of Registered Office

(1) A Foundation may change its registered office by delivering notice of the change to the CRO together with payment of the Prescribed Fee.
(2) A notice delivered under Article 17(1):
(A) shall be in a form prescribed or approved by the CRO; and
(B) shall be signed by the Registered Representative or authenticated in a manner approved by the CRO.
(3) Where the CRO receives a notice under Article 17(1), it shall enter the new registered office on the Register in place of the former registered office.
(4) The change of registered office shall take effect upon the registration of the notice of change of registered office delivered to the CRO in accordance with Article 17(2), but until the end of the period of 21 days beginning with the date on which it is registered, a person may validly serve any document on the Foundation at its previous registered office.
(5) Where a Foundation unavoidably ceases to perform at its registered office any duty to keep at its registered office any register, index or other document or to mention the address of its registered office in any document in circumstances in which it was not practicable to give prior notice to the CRO of a change in the situation of the registered office, but:
(A) resumes performance of that duty at other premises as soon as practicable; and
(B) gives notice accordingly to the CRO of a change in the situation of its registered office within 21 days of doing so,
it shall not be treated as having failed to comply with that duty.
