    Your sentence is a little bit ambiguous. It could be:

    Mr Smith, who signs the certificates, is the person authorized to sign that centre's gas emissions certificates.


    Mr Smith, who signs the certificates, is the person authorized to sign the gas certificates issued by that centre.

    The first sounds more likely, IMHO, but it's up to you to decide. You know the context!

    Hello Focalist,

    I went hunting and bagged the squirrelly critter:

    in my humble opinion (or in my honest opinion)

    An acronym often used in email, posting, and chat directly before an opinion that may be honest but is rarely humble.

    Alternative definitions:

    In My Hesitating Opinion
    In My Highest Opinion
    In My Holy Opinion
    In My Honest Opinion

    "Foobar" was originally spelt as "FUBAR" and meant "F****ed Up Beyond All Repair" (I'll leave you to fill in the blanks). When the phrase found its way into the world of computers it became "foobar" when programmers started using "foo" and "bar" as names for program variables.

    Normally a program will have variables with names that reflect the purpose of the progam, such as "TotalWidgets" or "score_so_far", but sometimes a programmer just needs some throwaway variables whose names don't really matter. Or maybe said programmer is simply writing a short testbed program with variables whose names matter even less.

    There are a whole set of such variable names starting with "foo", "bar", "baz", "quux", and so on. The generic name for this type of thing is "metasyntactic variable" and you can read more about them at The Jargon File here.
