What is remote online notarization (RON)?
RON is the process of notarizing a document remotely through the use of electronic signature, identity verification, audio-visual communication and electronic notarial journal and record keeping technologies. These technologies enable notaries to notarize securely while also saving time and travel for themselves and the parties involved. Instead of meeting in a physical location to sign a paper document, the notary public and the signer can conduct a notarial act on their devices from wherever they happen to be located, as long as their state laws permit.

Which types of documents can be notarized using RON?
Across countless industries, professionals have discovered how dramatically RON makes signing and notarizing documents more efficient and less costly. A RON closing is conducted the same as a in-person closing in that the notary and the signer(s) are in uninterrupted visual contact via the internet much like a video call.

Advantages of RON's

  • The notary must be physically in the state where they are commissioned but can do closings for any state that recognizes RON's

  • The closing can be at any time set so office hours, holidays and weekends are available.

  • The entire closing is saved in video and stored remotely for future reference.

  • Digital certificates to verify notary public identity to maximize trust and identity assurance of notaries public with digital certificates to attach to each notarial transaction and render the finalized document “tamper-evident.”
