Signed:  January 22, 2010

Effective:  February 03, 2010

Chapter: N/A

Affects:

Amends Section 160-100-0100 of the Oregon Administrative Rules

Changes:
  1. Clarifies that the commission expiration date appearing in the Notary’s seal must contain the full name of the month, two-digit date and complete year.
  2. Makes minor stylistic changes.
Analysis:

The effect of the third administrative rule change for Oregon Notaries in 2010 is that the commission expiration date appearing in the Notary’s official seal must be completely spelled out and not abbreviated or put in numerical format (e.g., “February” and not “Feb.” or “2”). In addition, the day of the month must appear in two-digit format and the year in four-digit format (e.g. “February 09, 2010” and not “February 9, 2010,” “February 9, 2010,” or 2/9/10).
