Architects’ Digital Signature and Seal Update

The State Architects Licensure Board, the State Board of Landscape Architects, and the State Registration Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists have submitted the final-form regulations regarding digital signatures and seals, published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.

Regulation “#16A-4111: Digital Signature and Seal” updates current regulations on seals to be consistent with other design professional boards and incorporates the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying Model Rule on seals on documents.

The Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC) plans to meet and act on this regulation at a public meeting at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 20th.  If you have any comments on this regulation, please reach out to Amal Mahrouki at amahrouki@aiapa. org.
