Effective Now – Required Information Reporting for Florida Remote Online Notaries

Florida’s Department of State, Division of Corporations (DOS) has adopted a new administrative rule with an important reporting requirement for Online Notaries Public.

Every current Florida Online Notary Public must file Form No. DC-DOS-50 (see access information, below) no later than thirty days after the new rule’s February 22, 2022 effective date. Persons registering to function as a Florida Online Notary Public must submit this form at the time of his/her/their registration.

Moving forward, changes to any previously reported information must be submitted by the Online Notary within 30 days of the change, using the same Form DC-DOS-50.

What information does Form DC-DOS-50 collect?

Using this form, a Florida Online Notary will report:

  1. The name of every remote online notarization (RON) service provider the Online Notary uses;
  2. The date the Online Notary began using each RON service provider;
  3. The ending date (if applicable) of the use agreement between the Online Notary and a RON service provider;
  4. Whether the Online Notary delegated, to a secure repository, the Notary’s duty to retain electronic journal records of remote online notarizations. (The Remote Online Notary must provide the secure repository’s name, address, email or phone number; the date the repository began retaining the Notary’s electronic journal records; and any end date of the agreement, if applicable. A recent law change now requires RON service providers—not a Remote Online Notary—to retain the audio-video recordings of remote online notarizations.)
