Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (240 ILCS 10/10) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 128)
    Sec. 10. Warehouse Receipts. Every operator shall, upon the receipt of personal property for storage, issue and deliver to the depositor a negotiable or a non-negotiable warehouse receipt.
    Negotiable warehouse receipt forms, complying in every respect with subsection (2) of Section 7-202 of the "Uniform Commercial Code", approved July 31, 1961, as amended, must be printed in a form prescribed by the Commission, and prenumbered by a bonded printer. Negotiable warehouse receipt forms must be kept under lock and key at the office of the warehouse operator. A register must be kept of each negotiable warehouse receipt issued. Endorsements shall be made on the negotiable warehouse receipt of any partial deliveries of goods covered by such receipt. Delivery of goods covered by a negotiable warehouse receipt without surrender of such negotiable warehouse receipt shall be prohibited.
    Non-negotiable warehouse receipts shall conform with subsection (2) of Section 7-202 of the "Uniform Commercial Code", approved July 31, 1961, as amended.
    The property of each depositor shall be specifically designated under a lot, product code, batch, or other control unit agreed upon by the warehouseman and depositor. Said designation shall also appear on the receipt for the purpose of identification, and a separate account and record shall be kept for each customer's property.
    No operator shall issue any receipt unless the same shall state on the face thereof in conspicuous type whether or not such goods are insured for the benefit of the depositor against fire or any other casualty.
