to the effect ...not been revoked

Could you please help me to clarify the highlighted part of the below sentence from power of attorney:

The principal declares that a person who deals with the Attorney in good faith may accept a written statement signed by Attorney to the effect this power of attorney has not been revoked as conclusive evidence of that fact

Does it mean that Attorney may give written instrument signed by him stating that this power of attorney has not been cancelled??

Just a little bit complicated wording for me

    It means that someone dealing with the Attorney can accept his written statement of his power to act as conclusive proof - he doesn't have to independently verify this with the person on whose behalf the Attorney is acting.
