Filing Office Operations and Search Logic Joint Task Force

Who We Are

The Task Force on Filing Office Operations and Search Logic has been formed to address issues relating to filing and searching under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code. The Taskforce will cooperate closely with International Association of Commercial Administrators (IACA) to (i) collect and disseminate information on how filing systems operate, with particular attention to differences among individual filing offices; (ii) work with IACA and individual filing offices to develop, modify, and implement rules that will help filing offices perform their duties and serve their constituencies; (iii) communicate IACA's advice on how best to use the services of filing offices; and (iv) make recommendations on whether and how the UCC should be amended to make filing and searching easier, uniform, and more certain to yield the best results.

Report of the Subcommittee Chairs

The Joint Task Force on Filing Office Operations and Search Logic met at the Business Law Section Spring Meeting in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 12, 2014. The FOOSL Co-Chairs will present a survey of the current statu of state UCC administrative rules following enactment of the 2010 Amendments to UCC Article 9, including a discussion of search logic issues and potential conflicts between the rules and applicable statute.

Please feel free to contact the Co-Chairs with any questions.
