What is an electronic notarization/eNotary?

Electronic notarization is a process whereby a eNotary affixes an electronic notary signature and seal information to an electronic document (such as a PDF or Word document). Once affixed to the electronic document, the document is rendered tamper evident such that unauthorized attempts to alter the document will be evident to relying parties.

An Electronic Notary (eNotary) may electronically notarize a document in person or online using audio-video conference technology.

IPEN (In-Person Electronic Notary) Services 

In-Person Electronic Notary (IPEN) was the first step in electronic notarization, with many states enacting eNotary legislation allowing for in-person electronic notarization. The steps are generally the same for both traditional notarization and IPEN: the signer appears in person before the notary public, the notary public identifies the signer, witnesses the signature, signs and affixes the notarial seal/stamp to the document as a notary public, and completes the notarial journal.

The only difference between traditional and electronic notarization is that technology is used to perform some of the requirements of the notarial act. In a traditional notarization, a pen and rubber stamp are the tools used. For IPEN, the notary uses a computer / tablet and electronic signature technology to perform the signature of the notarial act. Also, with IPEN, the notary public applies a digital stamp or seal and keeps an electronic journal of each act performed for a period of five to seven years (based on each state’s jurisdictional requirements).
