According to the 13 March 1995 Commercial Registration Department Regulation No. 1/2538, "Rules of the Commercial Registration Department on Partnership and Company Registration", any person registering a partnership or limited company will submit the application form with the documents specified in the Annex.

By virtue of the provisions in Clause 3, Section 3 of the Ministerial Regulation establishing the Commercial Registration Department whereby the Registrar can prescribe rules and procedures pertaining to the Registration of Partnerships and Limited Companies, the Registrar hereby stipulates the rules and procedures for partnerships and limited companies.
