Addressing Miami's Digital Signature Requirements
Miami development projects and plans are now required to be signed and sealed, or notarized using digital signatures for submission via the eReview service.
For a listing of which documents must be submitted in this fashion, please refer to the list of documents that require digital signatures via the City of Miami Electronic Plan Review Information web page.
In the electronic plan review process, it is crucial that a design and or engineer professional be able to prove their identity and the integrity of documentation that they submit. In the City of Miami, this is done by utilizing PKI based digital signatures for signing and sealing electronically produced plan sets and other documents requiring professional signature.
Laws and rules set by the Florida Board of Professional Engineers, Architects, and Surveyor's (FBPE) in Florida Statutes 471 and as implemented in Florida Administrative Code 61G15-23, allow the use of a digital signature for signing and sealing documents that are delivered electronically. The digital signature must come from a trusted Certificate Authority.
The City of Miami recognizes the need for our customers to conduct business electronically. GlobalSign will provide persons and entities that may need to electronically sign and seal plans and other documents with secured digital certificates.
