Article 9 Forms and Information Resources

United Corporate Services, Inc. (UCS) has compiled information regarding Article 9 and the July 2013 Amendments from our network of agents, jurisdictional websites and from our association with the International Association of Corporate Administrators (IACA). The information and charts below are updated when we received news of a change.

Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) was revised in 2001. The code was amended in 2010 with an effective date in most states of July 1, 2013. Many states have not yet enacted these amendments so the need for 2 sets of UCC forms is required. Please note the differentiation.
