Lenders (banks, etc.) protect financial interests through Uniform Commerical Code filings (or, UCC filings) on, for example, consumer goods or commercial equipment.

Senate Bill 1046 makes changes to existing UCC forms. The Secretary of State will now accept the updated UCC Forms. To accommodate this change, our office will accept both the 5/22/02 revision date and the form and format set forth in the official text of the 2010 amendments to Article 9. After a grace period of 30-days, our office will no longer accept the 5/22/02 form. The bill can be read at this website.
