Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

5 ILCS 312/6-103

    (5 ILCS 312/6-103) (from Ch. 102, par. 206-103)
    Sec. 6-103. Certificate of notarial acts.
    (a) A notarial act must be evidenced by a certificate signed and dated by the notary public. The certificate must include identification of the jurisdiction in which the notarial act is performed and the official seal of office.
    (b) A certificate of a notarial act is sufficient if it meets the requirements of subsection (a) and it:
        (1) is in the short form set forth in Section 6-105;
        (2) is in a form otherwise prescribed by the law of
this State; or
        (3) sets forth the actions of the notary public and
those are sufficient to meet the requirements of the designated notarial act.
    (c) At the time of a notarial act, a notary public shall officially sign every notary certificate and affix the rubber stamp seal clearly and legibly using black ink, so that it is capable of photographic reproduction. The illegibility of any of the information required under this Section does not affect the validity of a transaction.
