Select each item under the Signature Process to learn more.
- 5. Binding of Signatures to Document Content
CROMERR requires that all electronic signatures be bound to the document content. This means that the system must provide a way to ensure that the document content is, in effect, locked, so that it can not be subject to undetectable changes once the signature is executed.
- 6. Opportunity to Review Document Content
CROMERR also requires that the signature process provide the signers with the opportunity to review the content of the document they are signing.
- 7. Opportunity to Review Certification Statements and Warnings
Along with the opportunity to review document content, CROMERR also requires that signers have the opportunity to review certification statements—including any applicable warnings of criminal penalties for false certifications—before asking them to execute their electronic signatures.
