The State of California requires professional photocopiers to file a California Professional Photocopier Bond with the respective County Clerk.
According to the California Business and Professions Code Sections 22450-225463, all who wish to be a professional photocopier must have a notary public commission from the Secretary of State. They will need to apply and pay an application fee of $175, plus $10 for every additional card. They will also need to submit a California Professional Photocopiers Bond in the amount of $5,000 issued by a company licensed to do business in the state.
The California Photocopier Bond is required of all businesses that provide the service of photocopying records for insurance companies, attorneys, or any service that photocopies and can access the information they are photocopying. The bond is regulated by the County Clerk’s office in the county where the records are kept. The bond’s obligation is for the professional photocopier’s integrity and confidentiality in the operation of the service being provided. It protects the photocopier’s clients and the public from the spread of confidential information.
