  §  1.917   Who may sign applications.

   (a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, applications,
   amendments, and related statements of fact required by the Commission
   must be signed as follows (either electronically or manually, see
   paragraph (d) of this section): (1) By the applicant, if the applicant
   is an individual; (2) by one of the partners if the applicant is a
   partnership; (3) by an officer, director, or duly authorized employee,
   if the applicant is a corporation; (4) by a member who is an officer,
   if the applicant is an unincorporated association; or (5) by the
   trustee if the applicant is an amateur radio service club.
   Applications, amendments, and related statements of fact filed on
   behalf of eligible government entities such as states and territories
   of the United States, their political subdivisions, the District of
   Columbia, and units of local government, including unincorporated
   municipalities, must be signed by a duly elected or appointed official
   who is authorized to do so under the laws of the applicable
   jurisdiction.

   (b) Applications, amendments, and related statements of fact required
   by the Commission may be signed by the applicant's attorney in case of
   the applicant's physical disability or absence from the United States,
   or by applicant's designated vessel master when a temporary permit is
   requested for a vessel. The attorney shall, when applicable, separately
   set forth the reason why the application is not signed by the
   applicant. In addition, if any matter is stated on the basis of the
   attorney's or master's belief only (rather than knowledge), the
   attorney or master shall separately set forth the reasons for believing
   that such statements are true. Only the original of applications,
   amendments, and related statements of fact need be signed.

   (c) Applications, amendments, and related statements of fact need not
   be signed under oath. Willful false statements made therein, however,
   are punishable by fine and imprisonment, 18 U.S.C. 1001, and by
   appropriate administrative sanctions, including revocation of station
   license pursuant to 312(a)(1) of the Communications Act of 1934, as
   amended.

   (d) “Signed,” as used in this section, means, for manually filed
   applications only, an original hand-written signature or, for
   electronically filed applications only, an electronic signature. An
   electronic signature shall consist of the name of the applicant
   transmitted electronically via ULS and entered on the application as a
   signature.
