Subsections 31A-2-201(1) and 31A-2-201(3)(a) provide general rulewriting authority to the commissioner to adopt rules that will implement provisions of the insurance code. This rule focuses on the requirements for a rate service organization filing loss cost factors for property and casualty insurers as specified in Sections 31A-19a-203 and 31A-19a-205.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The department has received no written comments regarding this rule in the past five years.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

It is important that this rule continue in force. The rule provides instruction to rate service organizations concerning the filings they will use in Utah to be in compliance with the insurance code.
