Florida Notaries - Effective 1/1/2020

Here is a link to the new regulations for Florida notaries.


Please note that beginning January 1, 2020 you will need to use new certificates (samples shown beginning on page 7) - your certificates will have to reflect that the signer personally appeared via physical presence or online presence. The actual regulation about this is on page 4.

Also note the new regulation about certified copies - we are no longer restricted by having to see the original document and certifying the copy from the original…

I would suggest all Florida notaries read this carefully and keep the link handy for reference.
