Instructions for Certification and Signatures on Plans

The certification and signature on plans, specifications, plats, reports, etc., is mandatory. Please review MN Statute 326.12 Subd. 2-3 and MN Rule 1800.4200 to ensure you understand and are compliant with all requirements.

The examples below illustrate how you can present the required certification language and signature for inclusion on documents. You may vary the size of the text and spacing of lines to suit your needs. You may choose to create a rubber stamp/seal—or simply print the language directly on documents and then sign (a seal is not required).
