Subject: File No. S7-14-04

I am Filing Agent for our Companys Section 16 Affiliates and also have Power of Attorney for filing all forms 3, 4 and 5 at our Company. I agree that the move towards processing the Form ID electronically would be more efficient. However, requiring applicants to fax in notarized manually signed signatures on the Form ID is doubling the work. As well as, the notarization was not even required on the original Form ID. I dont feel that this would provide extra security. If a manual signature is required, then I would suggest that a .pdf document be required electronically instead of the follow-up fax. This would be the initial request for the Form ID and would show the manual signature.

Thank you.
