7.5 Sign the form


Once they have confirmed their entry, the user must sign the document. The signature module (1) opens in a new window. The procedure form (2) is displayed on the left-hand side of the window. A list of the different steps required to sign the form and continue with the procedure (3) is shown on the right.

The following steps are required to successfully complete the procedure:

  • select the certificate (by default, the system chooses the certificate the user signed in with);
  • after selecting the certificate, the user needs to click "Next";
  • on the new page, they check the box marked "Read and approved" and then click on "Next step";
  • then they click on the "Sign" button to sign the declaration. The user must enter their secret code in order to sign the document;
  • once the document is signed, the user clicks "Save to MyGuichet" to save it in their eSpace.
The signature and/or save steps can be cancelled at any time by clicking the "Cancel" button or the "Back to MyGuichet" link. This step is optional.

Ajouter une pièce justificative EN

If the assistant did not require any attachments to be added, the user clicks on the "Add a supporting document" button (1a). In this case, the document to add is optional.

If an attachment was required by the assistant, the user clicks the "Attach" button at the bottom of the form (1b). In this case, the document to add is compulsory.

Choisir pièces jointes EN

The attachment can be selected either from the document archive in the user's private eSpace (2), or uploaded from the user’s computer (3).

When attaching a document from their computer, the user selects the type of supporting document from the list, adds a document name (optional), browses to find the document they wish to attach, and confirms the step.

When attaching a document from their private eSpace, the user selects the document from the list of available documents, and adds it.

Once they have added their attachments, the user can:

  • display the signed PDF by clicking on the procedure form. The document is then displayed in Read Only mode, meaning it cannot be modified;
  • edit the declaration by clicking on the "Edit" button, or "Edit the declaration". If the document is modified, the user will need to sign it again before sending it;
  • sign the declaration if it has not already been signed. This step is mandatory: the document must be signed before it can be sent. In this case, as the declaration has already been digitally signed, the action is no longer available. It will become available once again if the declaration has been modified;
  • return to the user's private/business eSpace. In this case, the status of the application will not be modified. The user can return to the procedure at any time;
  • copy the procedure.

7.7 Submit the procedure documents to the relevant administration

 This step is mandatory. No information is sent to the administration before this step has been completed.

This action requires the form to have been signed digitally. In this case, the status "Ready" (1) is displayed. Once sent, the procedure will automatically be received by the administration in charge of handling the file.

To submit their procedure, the user must first ensure that all indicators are green – in other words, that the attachments have been added (2) and the procedure is "Ready".
