E-notarisation & E-legalisation

Electronic notarisation will make it possible to send by email to the destination abroad a notarised, fully authenticated document on the same day the client signs.  I am set up to e-notarise documents, however such a system is awaiting sanction by the UK Government.

When the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) adopt e-legalisation, that same document can also bear the FCO apostille.

The FCO are very interested in the concept and are currently working with the Notaries Society looking at a system for e-legalisation.  They have committed to give a decision shortly.

The notary will still be responsible for checking ID and authenticating the transaction or record, but it will greatly improve the speed with which the notary can complete the notarisation process for the client.
