Registered CE sources submit electronically signed copies of CE reports using the
ERE “click and sign” feature. This produces an attestation that is electronically
linked to, and included with, the CE report in the certified electronic folder (CEF).
The ERE attestation reads:
“I am certifying, under penalty of perjury, that I have been authorized or contracted
by the Disability Determination Services to examine the claimant named in the attached,
and produced a consultative examination report for that claimant. The report is accurate.
By checking the “I have read and agreed with the above” checkbox below, I am certifying
that I personally conducted, or personally participated in conducting, the consultative
examination and have electronically signed the report contained within.”
NOTE: For paper folders, the CE report must contain a printout of the ERE attestation along
with the ERE signature. The ERE signature shows the printed name of the signer or
the signer’s personal identification number (PIN)/user name; and the month, day, and
year of the signature.
IMPORTANT: An electronic “signature” produced by a CE source’s own electronic recordkeeping
system does not meet our requirements for an acceptable CE report signature.
