Universal Citation: AK Stat § 45.29.108 (2019)

(a) Except as otherwise provided in (c) - (e) of this section, a description of personal or real property is sufficient, whether or not it is specific, if it reasonably identifies what is described.

(b) Except as otherwise provided in (d) of this section, a description of collateral reasonably identifies the collateral if it identifies the collateral by

(1) specific listing;

(2) category;

(3) except as otherwise provided in (e) of this section, a type of collateral defined in the code;

(4) quantity;

(5) computational or allocational formula or procedure; or

(6) except as otherwise provided in (c) of this section, another method if the identity of the collateral is objectively determinable.

(c) A description of collateral as “all the debtor's assets” or “all the debtor's personal property” or using words of similar import does not reasonably identify the collateral.

(d) Except as otherwise provided in (e) of this section, a description of a security entitlement, securities account, or commodity account is sufficient if it describes

(1) the collateral by those terms or as investment property; or

(2) the underlying financial asset or commodity contract.

(e) A description only by type of collateral defined in the code is an insufficient description of

(1) a commercial tort claim; or

(2) in a consumer transaction, consumer goods, a security entitlement, a securities account, or a commodity account.
