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

Pursuant to Senate Bill 1046 passed by the Fifty-first Legislature Second Regular Session 2014 changes were made to existing UCC forms. A.R.S. 47-9521 was revised effective April 22, 2014. 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 until July 11, 2014. After that date our office will no longer accept the 5/22/02 form. The bill can be read at this website.
