North Carolina

Remote Online Notarization Law:

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

Even though North Carolina does not have a remote online notarization (RON) law, North Carolina 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 North Carolina when performed in accordance with the laws of the notary’s commissioning state. The applicable interstate recognition laws in North Carolina are N.C. Gen. Stat. §§ 10B-20(f)10B-40(e), & 47-2.2.
