A note from the Washington State Department of Licensing, UCC Department:

The Washington State Legislature has not yet approved state operating and capital budgets for the 2017–19 biennium, which begins July 1. If the Legislature does not approve budgets by June 30, several state agencies will go through full or partial operations shutdowns.

In the unlikely event that a shutdown is necessary, the services in the Uniform Commercial Code office will be suspended until the 2017-19 budgets are approved.

If the state does experience a shutdown, Unisearch representatives will still be able to file UCC filings online and can conduct both certified and uncertified searches. UCC filings submitted in paper form will not be filed until the office is able to reopen.

Please contact a Unisearch Service Representative for any questions or WA UCC needs you may have.
