Effective:  March 01, 2010

Chapter: N/A

Affects:

Adopts Section 160-100-0301 of the Oregon Administrative Code

Changes:

Establishes a new administrative rule for the proper disposition of notarial records, excluding records of protests, within 30 days after the date of termination of a commission due to expiration of the current term when the Notary has not applied for a new commission within 30 days of expiration of the current term.

Analysis:

Oregon has an administrative rule for disposition of notarial records and journals for virtually any eventuality – termination of commission due to expiration of the current term and an application for a new commission is made within 30 days (OAR 160-100-0310), termination of commission due to resignation (OAR 160-100-0320), termination of commission due to revocation (OAR 160-100-0330) and termination of commission due to death (OAR 160-100-0340). But one circumstance was omitted – until now. The new rule establishes journal disposition requirements upon termination of commission due to expiration of the current term when the Notary has not applied for a new commission within 30 days.
