Hi Sarah! As far as I know, only the shipper is responsible to sign the DG declaration. This signature may be replaced by the name(s) (in capitals) if the DGD is presented to the carrier by means of EDP or EDI. Further the person responsible for packing the container shall sign the packing certificate. Packing certificate is not required for tanks.

Dear Sarah, the Dangerous Goods Declaration must be signed and dated by the shipper. Other persons employed to act on behalf of the shipper such as consolidators, freight forwarders, and cargo agents may sign the DGD on behalf of the shipper.
