Electronic Plan Submission

Step 1: Digitally Sign Your Documents

Florida Statutes and  Florida Administrative Code require Architects and Engineers to sign and seal documents that are submitted for public records.

Engineers can refer to the FBPE Proper Signing and Sealing of Engineering Documents article. Engineers are required to have their digital signature certified through a Third-Party Certification Authority.

Digital Signature Requirements:

Example of a Digital Signature
  • Image of licensee Seal (as set forth in each discipline governing board)
  • Name of licensee
  • Date the document was digitally signed
  • The following language statements:
    • "This item has been electronically signed and sealed by [LICENSEE NAME] using a Digital Signature." (Date will be shown automatically with an Adobe System)
      "Printed copies of this document are not considered signed and sealed and the signature must be verified on any electronic copies."

Digital signatures (or IDs) can be created using Adobe Acrobat. For more information, please follow Adobe's guide.
