The Private Process Server Program governs the certification of private process servers in Arizona.

In order to act as a private process server in Arizona, all potential servers 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.

On November 27, 2002, Chief Justice Jones of the Arizona Supreme Court signed Administrative Order No. 2002-110, enacting new administrative rules for the Private Process Server Program. The Arizona Code of Judicial Administration §7-204: Private Process Server took effect on January 1, 2003. This code replaced the prior guidelines for private process servers, as originally adopted by Administrative Order No. 94-20.

Process servers are responsible for knowing and following the provisions of Arizona Code of Judicial Administration, Private Process Server - § 7-204, Rule 4(e) and Arizona Revised Statute § 11-445.
