notarized to appear personally before the notary public. The bill
authorizes notaries public to perform a notarial act on behalf of an
individual who is not in the notary’s physical presence, but only with
respect to an electronic document.
To perform a remote notarization, a notary must use an
electronic system that conforms to standards established by rules of the
secretary of state, including using real-time audio-video communication.
The bill establishes the standards that a notary must comply with to have
satisfactory evidence of the identity of the individual seeking the remote
notarization.
A notary and the operator of a remote notarization system are
prohibited from using personal information collected during a remote
notarization for any purpose other than completing the notarial act or as
necessary to effect, administer, enforce, service, or process the transaction
for which the information was provided.


Current Status:

Introduced In House - Assigned to State, Veterans, & Military Affairs (01/30/2019)
