North Carolina Passes RON Bill With Geolocation Requirement

July 12, 2022

North Carolina passed a bill that permits the use of remote online notarization (RON). The statute will go into effect July 1, 2023. One wrinkle in the statute that is causing concern requires notaries to verify the geolocation via communication technology of the remotely located principal. In addition, the ability to provide the geolocation of the remotely located principal is a requirement for a RON platform provider to get licensed by the Secretary of State.
