Because a digitally sealed plan can be copied and reused while maintaining the digital signature certification, plans produced by engineering express that are not site-specific are encoded with limitations of use that restrict their use for permitting to a single project.
Engineering Express encodes master plans with the permitting contractor, zip code restriction, and a date at which the permit must be applied for using that plan. If any of these three items don’t fit the intended permit, the digitally signed & sealed file is not to be used to obtain a permit.

- The zip code restriction validates a small geographic region for use while maintaining master plan sheet status and not creating a site-specific project. Site-specific projects require more engineering design & liability and are quoted separately.
