This session will provide an overview of the purpose of a seal, which documents require sealing, who is permitted to seal, and how to apply a seal. This session will also discuss the difference between digitally and manually authenticated documents as well as appropriate ways to manage, protect, and deliver each.

All registrants are required to authenticate documents which meet the following criterion:

  • The document contains information resulting from the practice of professional engineering or professional geoscience.
  • The document is complete for its intended purpose.
  • The document will be relied upon by others (whether for bidding, permitting, construction, implementation, use, or other reliance).
