What Is a Conformed Signature?

A conformed signature is a typed substitution for a signature on a duplicate document and is used with the understanding that the original version of the document contains one or more authentic signatures. Conformed signatures denote that all parties signed the original document by hand in the document’s signature area.

A conformed document uses typed signatures and seals to save time in the event that the document needs to be transferred or displayed electronically. Conformed copies of documents are generally admissible as legal evidence in a court of law in the event that the original document is lost or destroyed.
