Electronic Signature Guidelines
Policy Action Date
Adopted April 1, 2016

This document provides Electronic Signature Guidelines for Washington state agencies to:

  1. Help agencies determine if, and to what extent, their agency will implement and rely on electronic records and electronic signatures.
  2. Provide agencies with information they can use to establish policy or rule governing their use and acceptance of electronic signatures.
  3. Provide direction to agencies for sharing of their policies with the Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO) pursuant to state law.

These Electronic Signature Guidelines were developed in partnership with representatives from fourteen Washington state agencies. They are intended to be used to help state agencies best make risk-based decisions regarding electronic signatures and electronic records.
