The Uniform Commercial Code Survey: Introduction Academic Article uri icon


  • The survey that follows highlights the most important developments of 2014 dealing with domestic and international sales of goods, personal property leases, payments, letters of credit, documents of title, investment securities, and secured transactions. Along with the usual descriptions of interesting judicial decisions in these areas, which are highlighted in the survey, there has also been important legislative progress. The 2010 amendments to U.C.C. Article 9 have been adopted in forty-nine states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and introduced in Oklahoma. Those revisions were summarized in the Introduction to the 2009 survey. Additionally, the 2012 amendments to U.C.C. Article 4A, which address issues related to the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010, have been adopted by forty-three states and the District of Columbia, and introduced in Connecticut, Kansas and Vermont.
