§ 19.2. Change of commercial registered office address.
(a) In section 108 of the code (relating to change in location or status of registered office provided by agent) it is provided that where the registered office of a corporation or other association is stated to be in care of or is in fact in care of an agent who maintains the registered office for the corporation or other association and the agent changes its name or the location of its office in a county from one address to another within the county or ceases to provide a registered office for one or more associations, the agent may reflect the change of name or effect a corresponding change in the registered office address of or cease to provide a registered office for one or more of the associations represented by it by executing and filing in the Department a Form DSCB:15-108 (Statement of Change of Registered Office by Agent) with respect to each association represented by it.
(b) If the status of an agent as a provider of a registered office is terminated by the filing, the location of the registered office of the association represented is not affected, but the person formerly in care of the office thereafter does not have any responsibility with respect to matters tendered to the office in the name of the association represented. A plaintiff should make service of process on the actual principal place of business of the association represented, wherever situated, in order to minimize the risk of due process defects in the validity of any resulting judgment. As a result of changes in the law effected by the Judiciary Act Repealer Act (JARA), act of April 28, 1978 (P. L. 202, No. 53), the Department no longer receives or forwards service of process with respect to actions, proceedings or appeals against or affecting associations and other persons.
(c) It is not necessary for the association represented to take action to effect a termination of status of agent or other change of registered office as described in this section but the person representing the association is required to promptly furnish the association represented with a copy of the Form DSCB:15-108 as filed in the Department.
The provisions of this § 19.2 adopted June 22, 1973, effective June 23, 1973, 3 Pa.B. 1164; amended April 17, 1992, effective April 18, 1992, 22 Pa.B. 1993. Immediately preceding text appears at serial page (24782).
