MO Administrative Rules 2021 (Notary Commissions)


State: Missouri

Effective: February 28, 2021

The Missouri Secretary of State adopts permanent rules related to Notary commissions and the Notary complaint process.
Amends 15 CSR 30-100.005, 5 CSR 30-100.010, and 5 CSR 30-100.015.
  1. Modifies the title of 5 CSR 30-100.010 to read "Approval, Revocation and Suspension of Notary Commission."
  2. Provides that an individual who has been convicted of a felony involving dishonesty or moral turpitude, committed in the last five years, will be denied approval for a commission.
  3. Modifies the title of 15 CSR 30-100.015 to read "Request for Hearing on Suspension or an Appeal on Denial of an Application."
  4. Provides that an applicant who has been denied a Notary commission may appeal the denial to the Director of Business Services or his or her designee, and further provides that this appeal does not include a right to a hearing.
  5. Provides procedures, as specified, for filing a complaint against a Notary.
These permanent rules were adopted as emergency rules last year after Missouri's big Notary bill (HB 1655) was enacted. The permanent rules were adopted as promulgated in the emergency rules.
