During 2010, various amendments were applied to UCC Article 9, with a majority of U.S. states enacting them soon after. It is vital to maintain the most up-to-date information on what amendments apply to your state's UCC Article 9.

The state of Ohio enacted the Alternative A ‘Only If' option to UCC Article 9 (§ 9-503(a)(4) through (6), plus subsection (g)). In this approach, the financing statement should list an individual debtor's name exactly as it appears on their driver's license.

However, alternatives can exist if the license was issued by a state other than the state where the financing statement is being filed or if the debtor does not have a driver's license.
