Digital seals for Registered Professional Biologists (RPBios) and Registered Biology Technologists (RBTechs) registered prior to November 2020 can be purchased starting August 16, 2021 through their registrant profile on the College’s portal at a cost of $35.
In November 2020, Council approved the change from issuing a physical seal to a digital seal to new RPBio and RBTech registrants at the cost of $35. However, a physical seal can still be purchased through Beaver Stamp Works at an additional cost of $37.75 plus shipping and taxes. All requests for a physical seal through Beaver Stamp Works are verified with the College prior to being issued.
RPBios and RBTechs must follow requirements for use of their professional seal. This information is detailed in the following documents:
- College bylaws: Part 5, Division 5, section 5-16; Part 6, section 6-2
- Policy 6-200: Registrant Professional Seal Issuance and Use
- Signing and Sealing Standard
The College has prepared instructions on how to incorporate a digital seal into your digital documents. If you have any issues with the purchase or download of a digital seal, or questions about using the digital seal, please contact the College Office.
