Description

NJDEP UPDATE! In March 2021, electronic submission of applications will become mandatory for the NJDEP's coastal, flood hazard, and freshwater wetlands permits. For most of these applications, a digitally signed and sealed site plan will be required. Participating in this course will help ensure that your applications meet the DEP's requirements for electronic submission.

In response to rapid advances in technology, state agencies are beginning to develop and promote electronic application processes that include the electronic submission of site plans. To submit a site plan electronically, the site plan must include a digital signature and seal. This course will explain the process for affixing digital signatures and seals to site plans and will introduce some of the agencies that accept and/or will soon require site plans to be digitally signed and sealed.

Presentations from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and Department of Transportation (DOT) will provide a brief overview of their new systems and will explain how digitally signed and sealed site plans will be submitted and reviewed moving forward.

Featured Topics:

  • Brief History of Electronic/Digital Signatures
  • Terminology
  • Identifying Differences Between Digital and Electronic
  • Key Components of the Procedure
  • Code Requirements
  • How to Verify Documents
  • State Agency Updates and Requirements (DEP and DOT)

Elaine DeWan, NJDEP
Scott Ackerman, NJDOT
Joseph Gaffney, Maser Consulting
