Effective December 1, 2015, the Delaware Division of Corporations will modify the acceptable methods of communication authorized by the filing office for the acceptance of Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filings. The Division will require that all UCC filings be submitted to the Division electronically. The filing office will no longer accept paper UCC filings submitted directly to the State via mail, courier or fax. Electronic UCC filings may be submitted directly to the Division via the State’s e-UCC web application or through a variety of UCC XML submitters. Paper filings may be submitted through an Authorized UCC Filer who will submit the filing electronically to the Division. Delaware is providing to you a list of Authorized UCC Filers within the State who will continue the reputation Delaware strives to maintain. The Service Companies on the list of Authorized UCC Filers have had a long-standing relationship with the State of Delaware and have been approved by the Delaware Division of Corporations in the submission of UCC filings.
Effective September 8, 2015, there will be minor changes in indexing practices relating to the roles of Secured Party through UCC3 Assignment filings in the Delaware Division of Corporations’ new computer system. As a result, a Secured Party Full or Partial Assignment filing, whether changed or new, will be reflected on a UCC Search listing as “Added”. A search listing will not show Secured Party as “Removed”. This change aligns the indexing results to be more in keeping with Article 9-511(c) of the Delaware Uniform Commercial Code.
