Can you explain the difference between the Latin notary, and the notary public of the United States and English Canada?
Notaries in Taiwan receive a full legal education.
Legal counselling or advice
Legal counselling is an essential part of the Latin notary's function, while the notary public is neither permitted nor competent to give legal advice.
Lifetime vs short-term appointment
The Latin notary is licensed for life and may be suspended for ethical reasons only. The American notary public's commission expires with time.
The notary public has the power to certify, but his certification has limited probative effect.
The Latin notary is not obliged to testify before a court of justice with respect to notarial instruments unless their authenticity is challenged. Notarial deeds are proof in themselves, prima facie.
In the United States, a notarial seal means that certification is presumed to be authentic and clear, and convincing evidence must be brought to rebut certification. However, this presumption covers only the acknowledgement and genuineness of signature.
The fundamental difference between the two certifications resides in the fact that the notary public's certificate is not deemed to certify or guarantee the facts stated in the document to which it is attached. The notary public's certificate cannot override the hearsay rule; this justifies the exclusion of documents certified by a notary public from in-court testimony.

Is a U.S. Notary the same as a Latin Notary?(NNA's answer)
No. In Latin countries, the Notary is a high-ranking official with considerable legal skills and training. Unlike the U.S. Notary, the Latin Notary drafts documents, provides legal advice, settles disputes and archives documents.
