Using Your Professional Seal
Registered Professional Biologists (RPBio) and Registered Biology Technologists (RBTechs) are issued a seal. RPBios and RBTechs must follow requirements for use of their professional seal 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
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.
- 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.
NB: Purchase of digital seals is voluntary for registrants who already possess a physical seal. Acquiring a digital seal in no way invalidates a registrant’s physical seal. The College is offering digital seals to registrants registered prior to November 2020 in recognition of the increased frequency of digital documents that require sealing.
