Missouri Professional Engineer License

Allow Digital Signatures?Yes
Digital Signature Guidelines:

In addition to the personal seal, the licensee shall also affix his/her signature and place the date when the document was originally sealed, at the minimum, to the original of each sheet in a set of all final technical submissions that include, but are not limited to, drawings, specifications, exhibits, plats, reports, surveys, and certifications of construction prepared by the licensee or under his/her immediate personal supervision. The term “signature,” as used herein means the following:...

(B) For electronic or digital documents transmitted to others in their native file format (e.g., AutoCAD, Revit, Word, or Excel), a digital signature with an electronic authentication process attached to or logically associated with the document. The digital signature must be unique to, and under the sole control of the person using it; it must also be capable of verification and be linked to a document in such manner that the digital signature is invalidated if any data on the document is altered.

(C) For electronic or digital documents transmitted to others in a “pdf” or similar format that has modified the native file so that it is not easily altered, a scanned signature is acceptable if it is an accurate depiction of the licensee’s actual signature.

Allow Digital Sealing?Yes
Digital Sealing Guidelines:

The seal may be in the form of an embossing seal, a rubber stamp, or a computer-generated image, identical in size, design and content with the provisions of section (1) above.
