THE PRIVATE PROCESS SERVER PROGRAM governs the certification of private process servers in Arizona.
In order to be eligible to act as a private process server in Arizona all persons must be certified and comply with the requirements of the Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 11, the Arizona Rules of Civil Procedure, administrative orders and the administrative rules adopted by the Arizona Supreme Court.

The Arizona Code of Judicial Administration §7-204: Private Process Server, took effect on January 1, 2003. This new code replaces the prior guidelines for private process servers, as originally adopted by Administrative Order No. 94-20. The new code section contains some significant revisions, including:
Process servers are responsible for knowing and following the provisions of the new code section.
