A reinsurance intermediary manager may not do any of the following:

(1) Cede retrocessions on behalf of the reinsurer that the reinsurance intermediary manager represents, except that the reinsurance intermediary manager may cede facultative retrocessions pursuant to obligatory facultative agreements if the contract with the reinsurer contains reinsurance underwriting guidelines for the retrocessions. The guidelines must include:

(a) A list of reinsurers with which the automatic agreements are in effect;

(b) For each such reinsurer, the coverages and amounts or percentages that may be reinsured; and

(c) For each such reinsurer, the commission schedules.

(2) Commit the reinsurer to participate in reinsurance syndicates.

(4) Without prior approval of the reinsurer, pay or commit the reinsurer to pay a claim, net of retrocessions, that exceeds the lesser of an amount specified by the reinsurer or one percent of the combined capital and surplus of the reinsurer as of December 31 of the last complete calendar year.

(5) Collect any payment from a retrocessionaire or commit the reinsurer to any claim settlement with a retrocessionaire, without prior approval of the reinsurer. If prior approval is given, the reinsurance intermediary manager must promptly forward a report to the reinsurer.

(6) Jointly employ an individual who is employed by the reinsurer, unless the reinsurance intermediary manager is under common control with the reinsurer subject to ORS 732.517 (Purpose of ORS 732.517 to 732.546) to 732.592 (Recovery from parent corporation or holding company if domestic insurer ordered into liquidation or rehabilitation).
