Partner Bio

The Virginia Enterprise Applications Program and the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy (DMME) have established an implementation of a digital certificate program which is used by both DMME and the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT).

IdenTrust supports the Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy to by issuing IdenTrust Global Common (IGC) certificates to allow professionals to digitally sign maps and related official documents required by DMME and VDOT.  These digitally signed documents comply with the Virginia Uniform Electronic Transactions Act, requirements of the Virginia Board for Architects, Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors, Certified Interior Designers & Landscape Architects statute, and sections of Code of Virginia Title 13.1 requiring electronic seals.

The acceptance of digital seals and signatures assists DMME in the processing of fully electronic permits and licenses.
