Digital Signatures

What is a Digital Signature?

Your digital signature is a very important part of the ECT process. Rather than using paper forms, we require you to digitally “sign” the forms, without ever having to put pen to paper or post anything.

Digitally signing an assessment or registration is considered the same as signing a paper copy in legal terms. Only the signatory themselves must use their digital signature.

To digitally sign an assessment or registration, you’ll need to tick a box to confirm you are signing and then simply click a button.

Please note that this is a change from the old digital signature system, which required you to save personal information.

The system was formerly called NQT Manager, some images in these user manuals will still refer to NQTs but the system has been updated to refer to ECTs. We will be updating the images in these user manuals over time.
