An analysis of the function of Latin notaries reveals additional arguments in favor of regulation. The Latin notaries provide two categories of services: on the one hand, they provide certain public services and on the other hand, they provide legal services in a broad sense. The provision of the public services is solely entrusted to Latin notaries – the group as such has a monopoly right to exercise certain activities. The legal services in the broad sense, on the other hand, may well be provided by other legal professions, such as barristers, lawyers, tax advisers and sometimes even accountants. The latter aspect of the Latin notary function is sensitive to competition by other professions. The public service of the Latin notary has been enacted in the law. In several countries, governments have made the mediation of the Latin notary mandatory for certain transactions. The common denominator of these transactions is that they tend to have a substantial influence not only on the parties involved but also for third parties (and society in general). The notary has an important role and function in providing the legality of a transaction to the public. Related to the digitalization of a notary deed, the law has not explicitly regulated by the government, especially in digital notary deed making.
