§ 6A-9-807 Amendment of pre-effective-date financing statement.

(a) Pre-effective-date financing statement. In this section, "pre-effective-date financing statement" means a financing statement filed before the amendatory act takes effect.

(b) Applicable law. After the amendatory act takes effect, a person may add or delete collateral covered by, continue or terminate the effectiveness of, or otherwise amend the information provided in, a pre-effective-date financing statement only in accordance with the law of the jurisdiction governing perfection as provided in this chapter as amended by the amendatory act. However, the effectiveness of a pre-effective-date financing statement also may be terminated in accordance with the law of the jurisdiction in which the financing statement is filed.

(c) Method of amending: general rule. Except as otherwise provided in subsection (d), if the law of this state governs perfection of a security interest, the information in a pre-effective-date financing statement may be amended after the amendatory act takes effect only if:

(1) The pre-effective-date financing statement and an amendment are filed in the office specified in § 6A-9-501;

(2) An amendment is filed in the office specified in § 6A-9-501 concurrently with, or after the filing in that office of, an initial financing statement that satisfies subsection 6A-9-806(c); or

(3) An initial financing statement that provides the information as amended and satisfies subsection 6A-9-806(c) is filed in the office specified in § 6A-9-501.

(e) Method of amending: additional termination rule. Whether or not the law of this state governs perfection of a security interest, the effectiveness of a pre-effective-date financing statement filed in this state may be terminated after the amendatory act takes effect by filing a termination statement in the office in which the pre-effective-date financing statement is filed, unless an initial financing statement that satisfies subsection 6A-9-806(c) has been filed in the office specified by the law of the jurisdiction governing perfection as provided in this chapter as amended by the amendatory act as the office in which to file a financing statement.
