Secure Notarization Act: One Step Closer to Nationwide Remote Online Notarization
The idea of Securing and Enabling Commerce Using Remote Electronic Notarization was introduced in 2020. In February 2023, a bill to do so was reintroduced to the House for the third time and was signed by 29 cosponsors from both parties. On February 27, 2023, the House passed H.R. 1059, the Securing and Enabling Commerce Using Remote and Electronic (SECURE) Notarization Act of 2023. To become a law, it still has to pass in the Senate and be signed by the President.
How will the SECURE Notarization Act of 2023 Affect US Notaries?
After the act becomes federal law, the entire notarization process in the United States will change. First, the new law will benefit homeowners and property buyers nationwide by enabling fast and secure remote online notarization technology. Notaries public from across the country will be able to perform Remote Online Notarization (RON) of documents. This also means notarization will be possible for signers located outside the United States.
