Advisory Release AR-09-01:
Filing Documents with the Commissioner of Securities
The Commissioner of Securities is providing notice to and reminding interested parties of the rules concerning filing documents in the Commissioner’s office.
The Commissioner’s rules describe how parties who are litigating cases before the Commissioner can file certain documents. Those rules specify that a document—such as an answer to a petition or motion for a continuance—is not considered “filed” until it is received in the Commissioner’s office. See 15 CSR 30-50.020(2)(A). To file a document in the Commissioner’s office, you must either:
- deliver it by mail or carrier to the Secretary of State, Securities Division, 600 W. Main Street, PO Box 1276, Jefferson City, Missouri; or
- fax it to the Secretary of State, Securities Division, (573) 526-3124.
Finally, note that you must sign and date all filings however they are submitted. See 15 CSR 30-50.020(2)(A).
