Signatures & Seals

Before 2011, Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba members had to authenticate their professional documents using the traditional signature and manual seal. The Association still issues manual seals to all members once they register, however members may now digitally authenticate electronic documents. Use of the digital signature allows members to create, sign and issue that file as an original.

IMPORTANT "Electronic Seal" is still an acceptable reference to "Digital Signature," the current term for referring to the process by which a unique identifier is applied to a document.

Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba works with Notarius to manage digital signatures. The Association verifies new applications and has the authority to revoke digital signatures, whereas Notarius processes applications, and renewals, and maintains the verification system.

Advantages

  • Document versions are preserved after each signing
  • Documents can be encrypted to restrict access to their contents
  • There may be no need to print and store physical versions of electronic documents
