Online notarization FAQs

What is Remote Online Notarization (RON)?

Remote Online Notarization (RON) is a notarization where all documents, signatures, and seals are completed in electronic form. RON uses real-time, audiovisual technology to bring the notary and signer together.

Is online notarization secure?

PandaDoc Notary provides businesses and their notary with everything they need to get started, including a robust Journal with recordings of the session, audit trail, and a tamper proof document that is sealed with an X509 certificate.

How does online notarization work?

Remote online notarizations allow notaries and clients to meet face-to-face online, in real-time, using audiovisual technology. This is distinct from traditional, in-person notarizations, where the notary and the signers must be physically present in the same location. Multi-point, identity verification, including personal identification, is used to ensure the integrity of the notarial transaction.

Is online notary legal in the US?

In 2011, Virginia became the first state to legalize Remote Online Notarization (RON). In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic underscored the need for further use of RON, and almost every state enacted legislation or executive orders allowing for its legal use.

Each state has its own specific set of laws and regulations that determine how RON services must be carried out. This includes stipulations that both notaries and signers will need to be aware of and prepared for. For this reason, we encourage you to confirm legality with your Secretary of State.

I employ a notary in my business, do I need to use notaries on the PandaDoc Notary network?

PandaDoc Notary allows in-house notaries that you employ to use the platform.

Does PandaDoc Notary allow notarizations for clients outside of the United States?

Yes, in many cases, based on the relevant state laws, PandaDoc Notary can provide notarizations for U.S. citizens located abroad.
