When there is a change in the law, usually it takes some time before everyone in that industry catch up with the changes and their implementation.
I have seen notarial acts from different organizations, or the general public that need to be updated. When processing Apostille at the Sacramento Secretary of state, I have seen documents that cannot be processed because of the Acknowledgement or Jurat wording of the notarized page does not comply with the latest changes. See below the summary.
From the California Secretary of State, Sacramento:
Chapter 197, Statutes of 2014 amends California Civil Code section 1189 to require the addition of the following specific disclaimer to the top of the form certificate of acknowledgment: “A notary public or other officer completing this certificate verifies only the identity of the individual who signed the document to which this certificate is attached, and not the truthfulness, accuracy, or validity of that document.” The disclaimer must be legible and in an enclosed box.
