Universal Citation: OR Rev Stat § 79.0516 (2017)

(1) Except as otherwise provided in subsection (2) of this section, communication of a record to and receipt by a filing office and tender of the filing fee or acceptance of the record by the filing office constitutes filing.

(2) Filing does not occur with respect to a record that a filing office refuses to accept because:

(a) The record is not communicated by a method or medium of communication authorized by the filing office;

(b) An amount equal to or greater than the applicable filing fee is not tendered;

(c) The filing office is unable to index the record because:

(A) In the case of an initial financing statement, the record does not provide a name for the debtor;

(B) In the case of an amendment or information statement, the record:

(i) Does not identify the initial financing statement as required by ORS 79.0512 or 79.0518, as applicable; or

(ii) Identifies an initial financing statement whose effectiveness has lapsed under ORS 79.0515, and the filing office is that described in ORS 79.0501 (1)(b);

(C) In the case of an initial financing statement that provides the name of a debtor identified as an individual or an amendment that provides a name of a debtor identified as an individual which was not previously provided in the financing statement to which the record relates, the record does not identify the debtor’s surname; or

(D) In the case of a record filed or recorded in the filing office described in ORS 79.0501 (1)(a), the record does not provide a sufficient description of the real property to which it relates;

(d) In the case of an initial financing statement or an amendment that adds a secured party of record, the record does not provide a name and mailing address for the secured party of record;

(e) In the case of an initial financing statement or an amendment that provides a name of a debtor which was not previously provided in the financing statement to which the amendment relates, the record does not:

(A) Provide a mailing address for the debtor, unless the initial financing statement or amendment is included in a mortgage and the filing office is that described in ORS 79.0501 (1)(a); or

(B) Indicate whether the name provided as the name of the debtor is the name of an individual or an organization, unless the initial financing statement or amendment is included in a mortgage and the filing office is that described in ORS 79.0501 (1)(a);

(f) In the case of an assignment reflected in an initial financing statement under ORS 79.0514 (1) or an amendment filed under ORS 79.0514 (2), the record does not provide a name and mailing address for the assignee;

(g) In the case of a continuation statement, the record is not filed within the six-month period prescribed by ORS 79.0515 (4) and the filing office is that described in ORS 79.0501 (1)(b); or

(h) In the case of a record presented for filing at the filing office described in ORS 79.0501 (1)(b), the record on its face reveals, based on factors such as whether the debtor and the secured party are the same person or whether the collateral described is within the scope of this chapter, that the record is being filed for a purpose other than a transaction that is within the scope of this chapter.

(3) For purposes of subsection (2) of this section:

(a) A record does not provide information if the filing office is unable to read or decipher the information; and

(b) A record that does not indicate that it is an amendment or identify an initial financing statement to which it relates, as required by ORS 79.0512, 79.0514 or 79.0518, is an initial financing statement.

(4) A record that is communicated to and received by the filing office with tender of the filing fee under subsection (1) of this section, but which the filing office refuses to accept for a reason other than one set forth in subsection (2) of this section, is effective as a filed record except as against a purchaser of the collateral which gives value in reasonable reliance upon the absence of the record from the files.
