NotaryCam, offering online notarization and e-closing solutions to the mortgage industry, recently announced that it has been approved by the Michigan Department of State to provide both e-notary and remote online notarization (RON) services to the more than 113,000 notaries public registered in the state.
As an approved vendor, NotaryCam had to meet certain state requirements, including providing a demonstration of their notarial platforms to department staff that covered specific security features like tamper-evident documents and an audit trail.
To date, 13 states, including Michigan, have enacted RON laws, and another nine states are set to do so in 2020.
“The availability of RON nationwide is inevitable, but it is still a cause for celebration when individual states join the movement to modernize the notarial act by legalizing RON,” says Rick Triola, founder and CEO of NotaryCam, in a release. “NotaryCam is proud to be among the first vendors approved by the state to provide RON services, and we look forward to helping Michigan notaries continue to deliver the invaluable services they always have, albeit in a more modern and streamlined fashion.”
