As of March 1, 2016 the North Dakota Secretary of State's office launched its new Central Indexing System (CIS). On that date, state law required all central indexing filings and search requests be completed online. Paper filings and search requests will no longer be accepted by the state or county filing offices. The filer will be able to file documents and perform searches online in the CIS at https://cis.sos.nd.gov/. More information regarding the CIS is available at http://sos.nd.gov/central-indexing-ucc.
