In accordance with A.R.S. § 11-487.06 (This section is repealed by Laws 2005, Ch.

Commission adopted standards implementing the Arizona Uniform Real Property Electronic
Recording Act (Arizona URPERA), A.R.S. §§ 11-487 to 11-487.06 (This section is repealed
by Laws 2005, Ch. 109, § 2, effective January 1, 2008).

The Commission has adopted standards to implement the Arizona Uniform Real
Property Electronic Recording Act in accordance with A.R.S. § 11-487.06 (This section is repealed by Laws 2005, Ch. 109, § 2, effective January 1, 2008). These standards
are consistent with electronic recording practices of other states and those adopted
by national standard setting bodies. Additionally, the Commission considered in
developing these standards the views of interested persons as well as the needs
of counties of varying sizes, populations and resources.
The Arizona Electronic Recording Commission also had the duty to recommend to the
legislature what electronic recording laws, if any, need to be modified and what
the modifications should be. As such, the Commission determined that the current
electronic recording laws do not need to be modified and would not recommend that
the legislature amend any of the electronic recording laws.
Lastly, in the Arizona Administrative Register on November 23, 2007, the Commission
published the Arizona Electronic Recording Standards as a Notice of Agency Guidance
Document. The notice provides that the standards will be made available to the public
free of charge on the websites of all the County Recorders. With its mission completed,
the Arizona Electronic Recording Commission will cease to exist as of December 31,
2007 pursuant to Laws 2005, Chapter 109.
