84-7-103. Relation of article to treaty or statute. (a) This article is subject to any treaty or statute of the United States or regulatory statute of this state to the extent the treaty, statute, or regulatory statute is applicable.

(b) This article does not modify or repeal any law prescribing the form or content of a document of title or the services or facilities to be afforded by a bailee, or otherwise regulating a bailee's business in respects not specifically treated in this article. However, violation of such a law does not affect the status of a document of title that otherwise is within the definition of a document of title.

(c) This article modifies, limits, and supersedes the federal electronic signatures in global and national commerce act (15 U.S.C. section 7001, et seq.) but does not modify, limit or supersede section 101(c) of that act (15 U.S.C. section 7001(c)) or authorize electronic delivery of any of the notices described in section 103(b) of that act (15 U.S.C. section 7003(b)).

(d) To the extent there is a conflict between the uniform electronic transactions act, K.S.A. 16-1601 et seq., and amendments thereto, and this article, this article governs.

History: L. 2007, ch. 90, § 3; July 1, 2008.


Since Article 7 deals with the documents, regulatory legislation is not affected. In addition, 84-10-101(1) provides that nothing in Article 7 repeals or modifies any laws prescribing the form or contents of documents of title or otherwise regulating the business of bailees. Kansas statutes regulating warehousemen are found generally in K.S.A. Chapter 34—Grain and Forage, especially K.S.A. 34-223 et seq. See generally State ex rel. Crawford v. Centerville Grain Co., Inc., 5 K.A.2d 451, 618 P.2d 1206 (1980). See also K.S.A. 82-161 et seq. (Bonding of Warehousemen) and K.S.A. 82-201 et seq. (Elevators and Warehouses). Kansas statutes affecting bills of lading include K.S.A. Chapter 66, Article 2, on duties and liabilities of railroad companies.

Revisor's Note:

Former section 84-7-103 repealed by L. 2007, ch. 90, § 78 and the number reassigned to the current text.
