<p align="justify">Since the process of legalizing domestic documents before producing them to the foreign departments has become an issue, serious efforts have been made concerning the necessity of the examination of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s accession to the title Convention. The reason behind the importance of this convention is the willingness of states to shorten the legalizing process through abolishing the requirement of the foreign public documents to be certified by the diplomatic and consular agencies. Accession to this convention makes reference to the foreign consular and diplomatic agencies unnecessary and brings incomes for the competent domestic authorities while barring incomes for foreign agencies. This paper while explaining the certification and legalization of the domestic documents for reference to the foreign departments as an issue seeks to explore the necessity of Iran’s accession to this convention. Finally, it puts forward some solutions to set the scene for its effective implementation.
