Were you aware that wet signatures are not required on plans submitted to the Division of the State Architect (DSA)? 2016 AIACC President, Michael Malinowski, AIA, received this letter when he inquired as to the status of this rule. According to the California Architects Board, the board has not “adopted any rules or regulations requiring either the stamp or signature to be ‘wet’.”

Be forewarned the signature may be required locally, but rather than the local jurisdiction stating the signature a requirement of state law, they must have their own formalized requirement in place.

For more information, contact AIACC Director of Regulatory Affairs, Kurt Cooknick, Assoc. AIA.
