Notice of Mandatory UCC Online Filing and Searching, Including System Downtime

The Colorado Secretary of State will launch a new UCC filing and searching system on Tuesday, May 29, 2012, at 7:00 AM MST. This new system will enhance the filing and searching of commercial lien records and save businesses time and money.

When the new system launches, all UCC forms must be filed online. This will allow customers to use fast, electronic self-service. The online system will increase efficiency and reduce costs within the Secretary of State’s office.

The fee for filing UCC forms online is $8.00.

If you have an existing UCC user account, you will need to create a new account when the new system launches.

In addition to filing, all UCC searches must be conducted online. UCC search reports, copies of documents, and certified records will all be available for free from the website.

Paper filings and search requests must be received in our office by 3:00 PM on Friday, May 25th, in order to be processed.

Online filing and searching services will be unavailable beginning Friday, May 25, 2012, at 5:00 PM until Tuesday, May 29, 2012, at 7:00 AM to prepare for launching the new system.

Our office processes payments through a secure server.
