Changes to required signatory on credit forms

Published on 7 Aug 2013 Written by Batya Metalitz Posted in LEED

In our continued effort to streamline the LEED certification process, the required signatories have been relaxed in the LEED 2009 credit forms (versions 3.0 through 6.0).  With the primary goal of reducing the burden on project teams, the forms were modified to allow any team member completing the form to verify the signatory statements, regardless of their designated role in LEED Online.  This change applies to all previously designated Owner and Non Owner required signatories. The changes, described below can be viewed in the sample forms on our website or by selecting the Sample Forms tab in LEED Online.

Versions 5.0 and 6.0 forms – The Signatory box has been replaced with a checkbox. 

Version 3.0 and 4.0 forms – The Signatory box has been maintained, but reference to the team member role has been removed from the initials field.

Versions less than 3.0 – No change to the Signatory box, but it may be completed by any team member.

Please note that the Owner or Owner’s Agent (if the Confirmation of Agent's Authority Form has been completed) is still required to complete the LEED Certification Agreement in LEED Online.

Thanks Batya! Good effort!

Batya, thank you for this info! This is indeed great news. Could you just confirm that even if we have forms v03 or v04, that anybody on the project team can sign them? My forms still show the reference to the team member when initials are put in. Thank you!

Hi Jason - That's correct, anyone from the project team can sign the older form versions now as well.
Consultant, TRAJECT
does the form still register who ticked the checkbox?

Hi Gerrit-Jan - Yes, version 4 and prior forms still display the LEED Online user name when a signatory is initialed. Version 5 and 6 forms are only checkboxes and do not show the user name.

this is great, it allows us to spend times on more worthwhile efforts. The time we previously spent chasing down signatures and teaching people how to use LEED Online (internet explorer compatibility view) will now be put towards building a better building! Thank you for making this change.
