On March 11, 2021 Gov. Ralph Northam (D) signed into law VA HB 2064 (2021), which amends various parts of Virginia’s Code regarding electronic recordings and notarizations, such as requiring an indication within a notarial certificate as to whether the notarization was done in person or via Remote Online Notarization (aka “RON”).
Because this bill was passed as an emergency, it took effect upon passage (see Va. Code Ann. § 1-214[D] and Supra § 2).
We are currently reviewing this bill to determine any impact, and evaluating any modifications, to our document library and/or systems. Any modifications we make as a result will be announced on our website (https://compliance.docutech.com/).
