Joint Review Committee for UCC Article 9
The American Law Institute / The Uniform Law Commission
The joint ALI/ULC committee will draft specific revisions of UCC Article 9 to address specific issues that a study committee has already identified as needing statutory revision. The issues that the committee will address are those as to which ambiguities have been discovered in existing statutory language, where there have been substantial problems in practice in applying current statutory provisions, or as to which there have been significant judicial decisions or non-uniform amendments that suggest the need to consider statutory revisions. The committee presented a draft for initial consideration at the July 2009 Annual Meeting and is expected to present its act for final approval in July 2010. The draft also will be considered at the ALI Annual Meeting in May 2010. The Committee intends to recommend a uniform adoption date in 2013.
