The effective date of the North Carolina Remote Electronic Notarization Act (“RENA”) has been
delayed one year until July 1, 2024 to allow the Secretary of State additional time to promulgate
rules implementing the act. RENA also authorized the immediate use of emergency video
notarization until the effective date of the permanent legislation. With the effective date of
RENA postponed, the provisions allowing emergency video notarization have been extended
and a statement indicating that the notarial certificate was executed according to the emergency
video notarization requirements contained in G.S. 10B-25 will continue to be required.

For information regarding the process for emergency video notarization and updates on
rulemaking, please visit the North Carolina Secretary of State’s website at NC Secretary of
