The Delaware Division of Corporations reminds its customers that the State will be implementing a major computer system conversion over an extended Labor Day weekend. The Division will close at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 3, 2015, and will reopen for business at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, September 8.

The conversion to this new system will require time to complete all necessary tasks including the migration of data and images documenting 116 years of Delaware corporate law filings as well as Uniform Commercial Code filings. As a result, the Division will not be open on Friday, September 4, 2015. The holiday weekend was chosen as state offices will already be closed on Monday, September 7, 2015, in observance of Labor Day.

The completely revamped Delaware Corporation Information System (DCIS) is replacing the existing DCIS system which has been used since 1989. This upgrade will enable the State and its network of authorized online registered agents to offer expanded and improved products and services to customers.

More than 1.1 million active business entities worldwide are incorporated in Delaware including 66 percent of Fortune 500 firms. The new DCIS is a customized system providing a long-term platform for expanded flexibility and functionality for the Division’s customers and employees, and will allow global customers to access information regarding corporations more quickly and efficiently.

All priority submissions (1 hour, 2 hour, same day, and 24 hour) must be received by the Division by noon EDT on Thursday, September 3. The Division anticipates processing all priority submissions (other than 24 hour) on Thursday, September 3, 2015. Additional detail on the conversion including information on the availability of limited emergency services during the closure is available at
