47-14A-52. Certificates to be delivered to secretary's office--Duties of secretary upon receipt of filing. Any certificate authorized to be filed with the Office of the Secretary of State under this section (or any judicial decree of amendment or cancellation) shall be delivered to the Office of the Secretary of State for filing. A person who executes a certificate as an agent or fiduciary need not exhibit evidence of the person's authority as a prerequisite to filing. Unless the secretary of state finds that any certificate does not conform to law, upon receipt of all filing fees required by law the secretary of state shall:

(1) Certify that the certificate (or any judicial decree of amendment or cancellation) has been filed in the secretary of state's office by endorsing upon the filed certificate (or judicial decree) the word, filed, and the date and hour of the filing. This endorsement is conclusive of the date and time of its filing in the absence of actual fraud;

(2) File and index the endorsed certificate (or judicial decree); and

(3) Prepare and return to the person who filed it or the person's representative a copy of the filed certificate (or judicial decree), similarly endorsed, and shall certify such copy as a true copy of the filed certificate (or judicial decree).
