A "deputy" is someone who has the authority to act on behalf on a public official.  In movies you hear a lot about "deputy sheriffs".  They are merely officials granted power by the sheriff (probably elected by the populace) to enforce laws.  In that sense, "deputy" comes close to "vice" in Portuguese.

 

I've never heard the expression "issuer" given to a public official, but I assume that is what the document refers to.  In some states, possibly what the document calls an "issuer" would be called a "county clerk".    What kind of document is it?  What agency, office, or department issued it?

 

Good luck with the translation.  Without more information, there doesn't seem to be anything I can do for you.
