§ 9-801. EFFECTIVE DATE.

This [Act] takes effect on July 1, 2013.

Legislative Note: Because these amendments change the proper place in which to file to perfect certain security interests, it is particularly important that States adopt a uniform effective date. Otherwise, the status of a particular security interest as perfected or unperfected would depend on whether the matter was litigated in a State in which the amendments were in effect or a State in which the amendments were not in effect. Any one State’s failure to adopt the uniform effective date will significantly increase the cost and uncertainty surrounding the affected transactions.


Our collection aims to show each section of the U.C.C. in the version which is most widely adopted by states. That means we will not always display the most current revision if that revision has not achieved widespread adoption among American legislatures.
