With business moving freely across state lines and the volume of credit transactions continually increasing, the issues facing those accountable for reducing risk and complying with rules in the area of secured credit transactions grow more and more numerous. While the Uniform Commercial Code's (UCC) inclusion of the "security interest" rules (Article 9) provides a generally consistent code governing credit transactions in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, the Code allows for state specific provisions and interpretations. As a result, secured creditors, third parties and their advisors must be ever alert to changes, not only in the application of existing rules but also in the creation of new "variations." The Secured Transactions Guide insures coverage of all the latest developments and provides the guidance and information sellers or secured lenders need in using security instruments to protect their interests.
