Using an automated service, holders of AWTA documents can request an emailed copy of the original document for comparison and verification. This can be done by simply entering the certificate number and some security information from the documents they hold into a form on the AWTA Wool Testing website, a copy of the certificate is then automatically emailed directly from AWTA.
