Notaries Now and the new Code of Practice

Notaries Now
OBJECTIVES: For notaries to be aware of the information provided by the Faculty Office (FO) and their work with the Legal Services Commission in defending the regulation of reserved legal services and a roundup of matters of compliance and practical everyday issues as part of the business of being a notary including an alert to external compliance challenges such as EU regulations and client data security.

Code of Practise

Practice Rule 5.1 of one of the most important notarial Rules – the Notaries Practice Rules 2014 – requires notaries “to have regard always to the newly introduced Code of Practice. Whilst the guidance and statements of best practice contained in the Code are not obligatory, a notary must be aware and take account of the Code and the statements of best practice contained in the Code when providing notarial services”.

 

The Code of Practice is designed to help notaries to comply with their professional obligations, to safeguard the interests of their clients and the interests of all persons placing legitimate reliance on notarial acts, and to enhance professional standards.  It is published in full – all 21 chapters – online at http://www.facultyoffice.org.uk/notary/code-of-practice/ - the glossary runs to 9 sides of A4!

To make life easier, a printed version of the ‘Code’ is supplied to delegates in advance of our review of the parts most relevant to Law Consultancy Services’ practical approach to ‘the business of being a notary’.

Data Protection & Cyber Security

Taking care of Client data: what notaries need to know about cybersecurity and lots more besides 

New regulations are coming into force this year; notaries must record personal data so what do we need to know...

Under the “Notary Practice Rules 2014” notaries are obliged to record certain facts relating to notarial transactions.  Such data may be defined, under the Data Protection Act (DPA), as ‘personal data’ and therefore subject to external regulation.  As of the 25th of May 2018, all UK businesses will be required to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

As a notary, you could just make a written note of ….  Much more likely you will photocopy a passport, …..
With the cost of easy-to-use technology at an all-time low, you probably scan and save the documents on a computer system.  Now you have data in digital format and the fun begins as you start to manage multiple copies. Are they all under your control?  Well that depends on your setup… we look at some typical operational scenarios.

1) notaries working standalone with a single computer;
2) notaries with more than one computer device working in multiple locations
3) notaries using a computer network.

We consider computer hardware and software and how they are configured together and how data may be stored and backed up.

 

Section two is about Cybercrime. And just like normal crime, it’s mostly about money. You may think you are an unlikely target and that cyber criminals would not be interested in you; however, you would be wrong. Cybercrime is big business, the two types of cybercrime you may fall victim to are …  types of crime that can only be called blackmail; attempts to extort money from you…  prevention is better than cure: it certainly is - we show you how…
And lots more; whether you find information technology (IT) endlessly fascinating or utterly terrifying, this programme is for you as I describe what that you, as a notary, NEED to know about being safe online. 

Section three covers the new data protection legislation: the rules, the penalties for non-compliance and practical and proportionate compliance strategies.
