​​​​Remote Online Notarization - It's Here!!!

The Oregon Legislature passed HB 4212A​​, which was signed into law by the Governor on June 30, 2020​. While this bill contained many concepts, part of it legali​zes Remote Online Notarization (RON) through July 2021. RON also allows notaries from other states to perform Remote Online Notarizations for Oregonians. Visit our Remote Online Notarization​ webpage for more information.

Oregon Notary Public Guide

Be sure to utalize the Oregon Notary Public Guide. The notary guide has been updated and includes more information on the RON process as well as insightful information to help you perform your duties as an Oregon notary. It covers laws and rules, Attorney General’s opinions, state policy and much more.

Notary Public Webinars

The 2020 Summer and Fall Webinar Schedule is now available. There are many dates and times to choose from. You can attend from the comfort of your home or office. Visit our Notary Public Webinar​ page to view a complete schedule of webinars and to register for a class.

The Basics class is a comprehensive and thorough examination of notary basics: purpose, responsibilities and liabilities of a notary; how to notarize; notary certificates and the notary journal. It is designed to help you pass the notary exam. Seasoned notaries are welcome to attend.​

The Advanced class (CURRENT NOTARIES ONLY) address employee notary issues, notario and elder abuse fraud, journaling witnesses, challenging notarial certificates, IPEN and RON notarizations, among other topics. This seminar is only appropriate for experienced, commissioned notaries. It does not meet the training qualifications for a notary application.
