Remote Online Notary

​Remote Online Notarization (RON) was authorized in Wisconsin for the first time when on March 3, 2020 Governor Evers signed bipartisan legislation Wisconsin Act 125. Act 125 created the five-member Remote Notary Council and established several requirements to safeguard the integrity of the notarial process and help ensure that remote online notarial acts performed by Wisconsin notaries are accurate, authentic, adequately preserved, and secure. Among other safeguards, the law requires notaries performing remote online notarizations to utilize technologies that have been approved under the standards of the Remote Notary Council and DFI. Act 125 does not permit the use of unapproved technologies in performing remote online notarizations.

Wisconsin commissioned notaries can choose to register with any number of the approved Technology Providers (list updates as new providers are approved). Once a notary signs up with a provider and is approved by them they may begin using the provider platform immediately. The provider will inform DFI of the RON registration and it will be noted that the notary is now a RON on the notary search.
