Re: wet signature in CALIF

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The distinction the B&P Code makes is that all sheets of plans must be stamped and signed but only the cover sheet of specifications, calculations and reports must be stamped and signed.  To be clear I always place an index on the cover I sign showing what is included although as I read the B&P Code that is not required.
It doesn't require the signature until the plans are ready to be released for construction but most jurisdictions I deal with (Northern CA) require the signature before they will allow the Building Permit to be picked up (i.e., after successful plan check).

All sheets must be “wet signed”.  Of course, all sheets are stamped….
