(a)  Minor errors and omissions.  A financing statement substantially satisfying the requirements of this Part is effective, even if it has minor errors or omissions, unless the errors or omissions make the financing statement seriously misleading.

(b)  Financing statement seriously misleading.  Except as otherwise provided in Subsection (c), a financing statement that fails sufficiently to provide the name of the debtor in accordance with R.S. 10:9-503(a) is seriously misleading.

(c)  Financing statement not seriously misleading. If a search of the records of the office of the secretary of state or the Department of Public Safety and Corrections, office of motor vehicles, or of the records of the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, as applicable, under the debtor’s correct name, using that office’s standard search logic, if any, would disclose a financing statement that fails sufficiently to provide the name of the debtor in accordance with R.S. 10:9-503(a), the name provided does not make the financing statement seriously misleading.

(d)  “Debtor’s correct name.”  For purposes of R.S. 10:9-508(b), the “debtor’s correct name” in Subsection (c) means the correct name of the new debtor.
