The Ongoing Death of Paper - Delaware UCC Filings

Bad news for the paper industry and for those of you still filing your Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) financing statements by paper - the State of Delaware is no longer accepting paper UCC filings. Effective December 1, 2015, a person wishing to make a UCC filing with the Delaware Secretary of State's office must now either file electronically or deliver its paper UCC filing to an "Authorized UCC Filer" who in turn will file the UCC electronically.

For those of you still wedded to pen and paper, you can access a list of Delaware Authorized UCC Filers here.

If you are headed to the beach, you might consider taking along the Delaware Secretary of State's complete administrative rules which are available here.
