National UCC Forms

New Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Forms were effective July 1, 2013. Beginning on August 1, 2013, only the new forms will be accepted for filing and the filing office will refuse to accept all other forms.

Notice: Starting on October 21, 2013, the Secretary of State's office will offer a new online UCC Search and Filing Service and new UCC Administrative Rules will be effective. One of the changes is that "noise words" (meaning the words and abbreviations at the end of a name that indicate the existence or nature of an organization) will no longer be disregarded in a search. Additionally, a new online filing feature will allow filers to upload documents when filing UCCs online. If you would like to view or print the new rules, please click the link above.

The Maine Secretary of State will only accept for filing the UCC forms that were most recently adopted by the International Association of Commercial Administrators. These forms are provided below in Acrobat (.PDF) format. If you wish to complete the forms on-screen, you need to download a version of the Adobe Reader by visiting the Adobe website. To use one of these fillable forms, simply complete on-screen, print and mail to our office together with the proper filing fee.

Do not submit copies of UCC forms or return envelopes. The filing office will generate and mail a filing acknowledgment (only if item C is completed) using envelopes supplied by the filing office. If duplicate UCC forms are submitted, each filing is treated as an additional filing and charged the appropriate (additional) filing fee.
