Remote Online Notarization Law:

Online notarization is valid and enforceable in California because of interstate recognition.

Even though California does not have a remote online notarization (RON) law, California recognizes notarizations that are properly performed by notaries of other states. Therefore, an online notarization performed by a notary commissioned in a state with a RON law is valid and enforceable in California when performed in accordance with the laws of the notary’s commissioning state. The applicable interstate recognition laws in California are Cal. Civ. Code §§ 11821189, & 1193.
