Architect/Engineer Seal information

Postby Blackstone on Fri Nov 21, 2008 11:34 am

The Georgia State Architects Licensing Board Rule 50-2A-.01(1), and the Georgia State Engineers and Land Surveyors Licensing Board Rule 180-12-.02(4), BOTH prohibit architect/engineers from using electronic (computer generated) signatures/date for their seals – the signature AND date MUST be original ~ an original signature on the original drawing and then copies make for a submittal (i.e. ‘wet’ seal is typically not required) is apparently acceptable, but anytime you see that the signature on each sheet is identical, then the architect/engineer has violated these Board Rules and can be subject to disciplinary action by the applicable State Board… not to mention the 'document' is techically illegitimate!
We find consulations, we learn tricks with which we deceive ourselves, but the essential thing - the way - we do not find. Listen to the river.
