Is a signature required on all CofA's?  What about computer generated CofA's?

Depends on what your customers require. I don't require signed CoA's just like I don't require signed invoices. But it depends on what they will accept. There's no legal or FS standard that requires you to sign a CoA unless it's fulfilling some other requirement (like product release).

IMO this is best practice especially with regards to packaging specification COA's and good to sign off as acknowledgement of receiging and agreeing to these for food contact materials. I personally sign off on all COA's as it shows we have received, read and approved of these especially when legislation is specified.
