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.
