What is the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts (RULONA)?

An act promulgated by the Uniform Law Commission (ULC) in 2010 to provide a consistent framework for notarial acts, including taking an acknowledgement, administering an oath or affirmation, witnessing or attesting a signature and certifying a copy of a document. RULONA allowed for the performance of notarial acts with respect to eRecords and eSignatures, but did not address remote/online transactions until revisions of the act were made in 2018. At the beginning of 2020, 23 states had enacted laws based on RULONA. (See Tracking RON: From RULONA to Corona)
