In response to the ongoing pandemic, many federal agencies and state legislatures have revised their rules to allow for broader utilization of online solutions to remotely conduct business. This is opening up adoption of electronic signature and interactive signing technologies for a growing number of use cases – making it easier and more secure to approve business documents from anywhere – such as electronic authorizations for corporate SEC filings, additional tax documents and remote online notarizations. However, these changes are happening on an agency by agency, or state by state basis – some temporarily and some more permanently.

Join this webcast as legal experts discuss some of the most relevant state and federal agency changes impacting the use of electronic signatures that happened in 2020, a look at what to expect in 2021, and the practical impact these changes will have on your agreements. Also, increase your understanding of:

  • The changing regulatory landscape for adoption and approval of electronic signatures for SEC and IRS filings.
  • The differences in state requirements for remote online notarizations (29 states have approved so far).
  • How the changes will make it easier for you to approve and complete documents remotely in 2021 and beyond.
