A reinsurance intermediary broker and the insurer it represents in the capacity of a reinsurance intermediary broker may enter one or more transactions between them only pursuant to a written authorization that specifies the responsibilities of each party. The authorization must at least provide that:

(1) The insurer may terminate the authority of the reinsurance intermediary broker at any time.

(2) The reinsurance intermediary broker must render to the insurer accounts accurately detailing all material transactions, including information necessary to support all commissions, charges and other fees received by or owing to the reinsurance intermediary broker, and remit all funds due to the insurer not later than the 30th day following the date of receipt.

(3) All funds collected for the account of the insurer must be held by the reinsurance intermediary broker in a fiduciary capacity in a qualified United States financial institution. For purposes of this subsection, a “qualified United States financial institution” is an institution that:

(a) Is organized, or, in the case of a United States office of a foreign banking organization, is licensed, under the laws of the United States or any state thereof;

(b) Is regulated, supervised and examined by authorities of the United States or of any state thereof having regulatory authority over banks and trust companies; and

(c) Has been determined by the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services to meet standards of financial condition and standing that are necessary and appropriate for regulating the quality of financial institutions whose letters of credit will be acceptable to the director. The director may consider standards and classifications of institutions established by the Securities Valuation Office of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners for the purpose of making determinations under this paragraph.

(4) The reinsurance intermediary broker must comply with ORS 744.806 (Records required to be kept by reinsurance intermediary brokers).

(5) The reinsurance intermediary broker must comply with the written standards established by the insurer for the cession or retrocession of all risks.

(6) The reinsurance intermediary broker must disclose to the insurer any relationship with any reinsurer to which business will be ceded or retroceded. [1993 c.447 §76; 2003 c.364 §29]
