The National Notary Association and eNotarization

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 21, 2009) - As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, the National Notary Association -- the voice of America's 4.8 million Notaries Public and the nation's leading authority on notarization -- has published an important white paper that underscores its longstanding leadership role in the expanding realm of electronic notarization. Continuing to advocate for widespread adoption of secure systems for electronic notarization, the NNA's paper -- The National Notary Association and Electronic Notarization -- details the Association's efforts and plans for the future.

During the past decade the National Notary Association played a pivotal role in the growing stature and acceptance of electronic notarization. Its groundbreaking work in creating a secure system for eNotarization boosted electronic transaction security to new heights by adapting the Notary's traditional role as a trusted and impartial third party witness into the electronic environment.

In expanding its advocacy, education and standard setting efforts, the NNA maintains that the trust and security of electronic transactions rely heavily upon the fundamental principles of notarization -- principles that include personal appearance before the Notary, proof of identity, screening for volition and awareness, safeguarding the Notary's seal of office and producing a secure permanent record of each notarial act.

The NNA's continued leadership in electronic notarization bolsters the nationwide pursuit for best Notary practices and universal standards in electronic transactions. For more information, please download the white paper from the NNA's Web site,
