State: Missouri

Effective: September 15, 2020


The Missouri Secretary of State has adopted emergency rules related to Notary commissions due to its new statutes taking effect on August 28, 2020.


Amends 15 CSR 30-100.005, 30-100.010 and 15 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.

This emergency amendment adjusts the administrative rule to be consistent with provisions in RSMO 486.605, which took effect on August 28, 2020. The expiration date of the emergency rule is March 13, 2021.
