PEGNL Provides Option of Digital Signatures for Stamping Professional Documents

by PEGNL News

PEGNL license holders can now subscribe to digital signatures for stamping professional documents.

PEGNL has selected Notarius as the digital service provider allowing PEGNL to issue digital signatures to licensees and permit to practice holders. The PEGNL Practice Guideline for Authenticating Professional Documents has been updated to reflect the digital signature option.

“At PEGNL, we strive to stay current with industry trends and today’s announcement of providing the option of digital signatures demonstrates just that. The use of digital signatures is not mandatory but simply another option that is available to licensees and permit holders. We are very pleased to offer this option to our license holders and are pleased to have partnered with Notarius to provide the service.”

-Geoff Emberley, CEO of PEGNL
