# SealingService v1
SealingService is a service with a SOAP web service interface and is used for sealing PDF documents.
The service may be used from any platform capable of making a SOAP web service call and relies on Signicat's Session Data Storage (SDS) service for uploading and downloading binary document data.
The WSDL for the service is available at:
|Pre-production||https://preprod.signicat.com/ws/sealingservice-v1?wsdl (opens new window)|
|Production||https://id.signicat.com/ws/sealingservice-v1?wsdl (opens new window)|
The only difference between the WSDL in pre-production and production is the SOAP address location attribute.
