Engineering Seal Questions

Q. I am a South Carolina registered PE and was recently told that when signing & sealing documents, electronic signatures and dates are now acceptable. Is this information true?

A. Yes. Effective 07/16/2004 under the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (Section 26-6-50B) and (Section 26-6-70(A)(D)), electronic signatures are acceptable between parties who agree to conduct transactions by electronic means. Electronic seals are authorized in Reg. 49-207(A)(2).

Q. I was just approved for a Certificate of Authorization (COA). Can the corporate seal be a rubber stamp or does it have to be an embossed seal?

A. The Certificate of Authorization (COA) seal can be a rubber stamp, an embossed seal, or may be computer generated.

Q. I am a registered South Carolina PE and recently applied for and was issued a Certificate of Authorization (COA). When do I need to put the corporate seal on my drawings?

A. The COA seal should be affixed to all documents which would otherwise require the individual seal.
