The Governor of New York recently signed into law Senate Bill S1780C, which authorizes remote online notarization on a permanent basis.  The law’s provisions become effective June 20, 2022.

Under the new law, any notary public registered with the secretary of state to perform electronic notarizations may remotely perform any notarial act using “communication technology” so long as the notarized document can be signed with an electronic signature and the notary is located in New York when performing the notarial act.  Signing parties may be located outside the state.  For these purposes, “communication technology” means an electronic device or process that allows the parties to communicate with each other simultaneously by sight and sound.  The new law requires the New York Secretary of State to provide regulations implementing specific standards for online notarization sessions. 

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
