Criteria to be met by assuming insurer in order to be accredited as reinsurer

(1) For purposes of allowing credit to a ceding domestic insurer under ORS 731.509 (Legislative intent) when the reinsurance is ceded to an assuming insurer that is accredited as a reinsurer in this state, an insurer may be accredited as a reinsurer in this state if the insurer:

(a) Files and maintains with the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services evidence of its submission to the jurisdiction of this state;

(b) Submits to the authority of the director to examine its books and records;

(c) Is authorized or licensed to transact insurance or reinsurance in at least one state or, in the case of a United States branch of an alien assuming insurer, is entered through and authorized or licensed to transact insurance or reinsurance in at least one state;

(d) Files annually with the director a copy of its annual statement filed with the insurance department of its state of domicile and a copy of its most recent audited financial statement; and

(e) Satisfies either of the following requirements:

(A) Maintains combined capital and surplus in an amount that is not less than $20,000,000. An application for accreditation by an insurer who maintains the amount of combined capital and surplus specified in this subparagraph is considered to be approved if the application is not disapproved on or before the 90th day after the application is complete and is filed with the director.

(B) Maintains combined capital and surplus in an amount less than $20,000,000. An insurer applying for accreditation who maintains the amount of combined capital and surplus specified in this subparagraph is not accredited until the application for accreditation is approved by the director.

(2) An insurer that is accredited as a reinsurer in this state may accept reinsurance only of those risks and retain the risk thereon within such limits as the accredited reinsurer is otherwise authorized to insure directly in a state in which the accredited reinsurer is authorized or licensed to transact insurance.

(3) The director may revoke the accreditation of an assuming insurer if the director determines that the assuming insurer has failed to continue to meet any of the requirements of subsection (1) of this section. [1993 c.447 §67]
