On March 20, the Washington Department of Financial Institutions issued a notice concerning signature requirements on applications and notice filings required during the Covid-19 outbreak. The notice provides that the Securities Division requires all franchise filings to be made electronically through its online electronic filing system, and will not require “wet” signatures on filings. Where a signature is required, copies (including PDF copies) of signed documents are sufficient. Additionally, the Securities Division is waiving any notary requirements during the Covid-19 outbreak.
