How does RON work?

Remote online notarizations allow notaries and clients to meet face-to-face online, in real-time, using audiovisual technology.

Are notarial acts conducted in compliance with a state Remote Online Notarization law recognized in any other state?

The Model Electronic Notarization Act of 2017 (MENA) sets a precedent that establishes that as long as the notarial act was carried out in compliance with the laws of the jurisdiction where it was committed, it can be recognized across state lines. This precedent is consistent with previous legislation that allows traditional notarial acts to be recognized across state lines as well.
