To ensure the validity of electronic signatures on construction-related documents, contractors can take several steps.
First, you need to choose a reliable electronic signature provider that uses secure technology and complies with industry regulations. You should also implement an authentication process verifying the signer’s identity, such as requiring a password or a multi-factor authentication system.
Additionally, you can include an audit trail with each signed document that records critical details such as the time, date, and location of the signature, as well as the signer’s IP address.
Finally, it’s essential to educate all parties involved in the signing process on the legal and technical requirements for electronic signatures to ensure that they are aware of the necessary precautions and procedures.
