Does the Youthpass certificate have to be signed?

The certificates should in principle be handed out signed, and as there is for the time being no digital signature option for Youthpass, they should be handed out on paper. Sometimes, organisations send out the certificates by e-mail and ask the participants to print them out on their own. In this case the certificate would come without the original signature. In some contexts, the signature may be important to show that this is an official and authentic document, so if you would prefer to have it signed, please let your organisation know.
