Electronic Notarization Standards Discussed

by PAN
The Georgia Superior Court Clerks' Cooperative Authority (GSCCCA) hosted a meeting in Atlanta Oct. 19-20, 2015 when notary public administrators (NPAs), members of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) and notary association executives gathered to discuss the NASS National Electronic Notarization Standards.

PAN President and CEO Marc L. Aronson attended the meeting.

“We attend meetings like this to represent Pennsylvania notaries, to provide education and counsel, and to make sure the topics best serve our members,” Aronson said. “The NASS Standards are an important part of the future of notaries.”

According to NASS, the Electronic Notarization Standards “provide a thoughtful blueprint for reliable and trusted technology-assisted notarial acts, while preserving the fundamental principles that have made notarization an essential element of document execution for centuries.” States wishing to implement electronic notarization may voluntarily adopt the full Standards, or selected parts.

The purpose of the October meeting was to review the Standards and suggest changes in advance of the 2016 NASS Summer Conference scheduled for July 14-17 in Nashville, Tenn. Approved in 2006, the Standards must be reaffirmed by the NASS membership at a conference every five years.

“This meeting helped to ensure that when the Standards are reaffirmed in 2016, they will continue to be relevant to notaries and will withstand the changes in electronic notarization that may occur in the next five years,” Aronson said.

Georgia notaries public are commissioned for a four-year term by the Clerk of Superior Court in their county of residence. The GSCCCA was established by law to provide support and project development to the Clerks of Superior Court.
