Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Do you have a specific question about this?
Hi there, the simple fact that you have a title that states you are a technical manager will not in itself automatically make you liable. This would depend on your official responsibilities in work – what you are expected to do, what you are qualified for, etc. If it is not in your duties to sign off such technical documentation or you are simply not qualified to do so, then you cannot be forced to do it. At the moment it looks like you are damned if you do and damned if you don't but in reality you should only be required to sign this off if you are qualified to do it. It is worse if you sign something which you are not capable of doing and then something happens, rather than making it clear that you refuse to do so and the reasons for it. If you sign is your name is ***** ***** document and you will take some responsibility for it, if it is not then it cannot come back on you, especially if you could not sign it off in the first place and you had made your reasons clear as to why you would not sign it.
