(a) This division does not affect an action or proceeding commenced before this division becomes operative.

(b) If a security interest in a security is perfected at the date this division becomes operative, and the action by which the security interest was perfected would suffice to perfect a security interest under this division, no further action is required to continue perfection. If a security interest in a security is perfected at the date this division takes effect but the action by which the security interest was perfected would not suffice to perfect a security interest under this division, the security interest remains perfected for a period of four months after the operative date and continues perfected thereafter if appropriate action to perfect under this division is taken within that period. If a security interest is perfected at the date this division becomes operative and the security interest can be perfected by filing under Division 9 (commencing with Section 9101), a financing statement signed by the secured party instead of the debtor may be filed within that period to continue perfection or thereafter to perfect and that financing statement shall contain a statement that it is being filed pursuant to this section.

(Amended by Stats. 1999, Ch. 991, Sec. 33.5. Effective January 1, 2000. Operative July 1, 2001, by Sec. 75 of Ch. 991.)
