System Modernization Project: Transforming the Way We Do Business Online
The State Corporation Commission (SCC) is transforming the way we do business online. On December 9, 2019, the SCC launched a modern, mission-critical system – the Clerk’s Information System- used to manage the SCC’s business entity and Uniform Commercial Code records. Each year, more than 600,000 businesses file documents with the Clerk’s Office of the SCC to maintain their businesses in Virginia. The new online business services unifies user experiences, allowing businesses to complete most of the required business filings and submissions online using a secure, web-based system. A user account and Personal Identification Number (PIN) are required for most business entity transactions.

The Clerk of the Commission is the official custodian of the judicial and administrative records of the Virginia State Corporation Commission.
Business entity, Uniform Commercial Code and SCC case documents and information on file in the Office of the Clerk are in most instances open to public examination. Many documents may be viewed and downloaded from CIS and Docket Search. These documents and information may also be viewed in the Clerk’s Office.
Staff members of the Clerk's Office can provide information regarding the requirements under Virginia law for filing a document in this office; however, the staff cannot provide legal, business or tax advice to the public. Guidance on these matters should be obtained from a legal or tax professional.
Notice Regarding Personal Identifiable Information
Generally, personal identifiable information such as social security or driver's license number, date of birth, or financial institution account number should NOT be included in business entity or Uniform Commercial Code documents submitted to the Office of the Clerk for filing with the Commission. The person who prepares or submits to the Clerk's Office a document for filing is responsible for ensuring that the document contains no such information. The Clerk's Office is authorized to obliterate, without prior notice, personal identifiable data included in a document or refuse to accept for filing a document containing such data. Note that most information contained in documents filed with the Commission is subject to public viewing.
