The Great Seal of the State of Mississippi

In the United States, auctions are regulated on a state by state basis. The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is a general “code of commerce” which serves as the basis for auction law and has been drafted, by many states, into their license law. Auctioneers in states that do not have a license law are required to follow UCC guidelines (Louisiana by analogy).
