N.J. Admin. Code § 7:7A-10.9 - Signatories to permit applications and reports

(a) A permit application shall be signed by the person or persons specified below:
1. For a corporation, by a principal executive officer of at least the level of vice president;
2. For a partnership or sole proprietorship, by a general partner or the proprietor, respectively;
3. For a municipality, State, Federal, or other public entity, by either a principal executive officer or ranking elected official; or
4. For an entity not covered at (a)1 through 3 above, by all individual owners of record.
(b) All reports required by permits and other information requested by the Department shall be signed by a person described in (a) above, or by a duly authorized representative of that person. A person is a duly authorized representative only if:
1. The authorization is made in writing by a person described in (a) above;
2. The authorization specifies either an individual or a position having overall responsibility for the construction and/or completion of the regulated project or activity, such as the position of contractor, construction site supervisor, or position of equivalent responsibility. A duly authorized representative may, thus, be either a named individual or any individual occupying a named position; and
3. The written authorization is submitted with the application to the Department.
(c) If an authorization under (b) above is no longer accurate because a different individual or position has overall responsibility for the construction and/or completion of the regulated facility or activity, a new authorization satisfying the requirements of (b) above must be submitted to the Department prior to or together with any reports, information, or applications to be signed by an authorized representative.
(d) If an application, report, survey, environmental impact statement, or other document required under this chapter is prepared for an applicant by a professional such as a consultant, engineer, architect, surveyor, attorney, or scientist, the document shall include the certification required under (e) below, signed by the professional responsible for preparing the document. This certification shall be in addition to the certification signed by the applicant.
(e) Any person signing a document under (a) or (b) above shall make the following certification:

"I certify under penalty of law that I have personally examined and am familiar with the information submitted in this document and all attachments and that, based on my inquiry of those individuals immediately responsible for obtaining and preparing the information, I believe that the information is true, accurate, and complete. I am aware that there are significant penalties for submitting false information, including the possibility of fine and imprisonment."

(f) Any survey submitted under this chapter shall be performed by a surveyor licensed in New Jersey. In addition, the Department may in some cases require that other documents be submitted, signed, sealed, and/or certified by a person with relevant qualifications such as a license or certification.
