The Signed By field indicates whether a transaction has been signed and who has signed the transaction.

An FAA cannot electronically submit an application to the CPS for processing without first identifying that the application has been signed by the applicant or by both the applicant and his/her parent. However, a student can submit a paper or electronic application without applying signatures, resulting in a rejected SAR if signatures are not applied within 14 days from the date the application is received by the CPS.
