Notarization anytime, anywhere.
  1. The signer contacts the Notary to request a remote online notarization.

  2. The signer sends document(s) to be notarized to the Notary.

  3. Notary uploads document to the online technology platform used to perform the notarization.

  4. The signer’s identity is screened by:​​​ 

    • Answering questions based on the signer’s personal and credit history or Knowledge Based Authentication (KBA).

    • Notary views the signer’s ID during the notarization remotely,

  5. The signer and the Notary must sign the document and the Notary’s seal attached. For electronic documents, this requires electronic signatures and an electronic version of the Notary’s seal.

  6. The Notary records any required information for the Notary’s journal records. The Notary must typically also retain an audio and video recording of the notarization session.

  7. The remotely notarized document is returned to the signer.

 

(This is a general description of a remote online notarization. Please note that RON procedures may vary depending on state laws, and not all states permit Notaries to perform remote online notarizations.)

What is RON?

All notaries, no matter how they perform their service, must watch as someone signs a document. Remote Online Notarization, or RON, is the use of audio/visual technology to complete a notarial act when the principal is not in the same physical location as the notary public.
