Mississippi – UCC Article 9 2010 amendments introduced

January 25, 2013

The Mississippi Senate introduced a bill on January 21, 2013 to enact the 2010 Amendments to UCC Article 9.  Senate Bill 2609 adopts the Alternative A “Only If” approach for individual debtor name sufficiency in Section 9-503(a)(4), incorporates by reference the new forms in Section 9-521 and follows the uniform effective date of July 1, 2013.

The bill includes one significant non-uniform provision.  It omits the new definition for “registered organization” in Section 9-102(a)(71), which could create ambiguity for sufficiency of registered organization debtor names.  The revised definition, together with the new definition of  “public organic record” in Section 9-102(a)(70), form the basis of the new registered organization debtor name sufficiency rules in Section 9-503(a)(1).
