Confirmation on paper
If you file documents electronically, you need not supply paper confirmation. If you are invited to supply a written confirmation of a document filed by fax, you must do so within a non-extendable period of two months. If you fail to comply with the invitation in due time, the document is deemed not to have been received (see point 109).
