§ 78.16 Who may sign applications.
(a) Applications, amendments thereto, and related statements of fact
required by the Commission shall be personally signed by the applicant,
if the applicant is an individual; by one of the partners, if the
applicant is a partnership; by an officer, if the applicant is a
corporation; or by a member who is an officer, if the applicant is an
unincorporated association. Applications, amendments, and related
statements of fact filed on behalf of government entities shall be
signed by such duly elected or appointed officials as may be competent
to do so under the laws of the applicable jurisdiction.
(b) Applications, amendments thereto, 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 of his absence from the
United States. The attorney shall in that event separately set forth
the reasons why the application is not signed by the applicant. In
addition, if any matter is stated on the basis of the attorney's belief
only (rather than his knowledge), he shall separately set forth his
reasons for believing that such statements are true.
(c) Only the original of applications, amendments, or related
statements of fact need be signed; copies may be conformed.
(d) Applications, amendments, and related statements of fact need not
be submitted under oath. Willful false statements made therein,
however, are punishable by fine and imprisonment, United States Code,
title 18, section 1001, and by appropriate administrative sanctions,
including revocation of station license pursuant to section 312(a)(1)
of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.
