NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Section 31A-2-201 authorizes the commissioner to write rules to implement the provisions of the Utah Insurance Code, Title 31A.
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 during 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:
This rule prevents insurers from reducing a liability or increasing an asset when any of the listed provisions exist. This rule contains scenarios that should not exist relating to the Life and Health Reinsurance Agreements to assure transfer of risk. Risk transfer is essential if a large event (claim) should occur that would cause the insurer to make a monetary settlement beyond its surplus capacity. The contracts shall be written in a manner that assures the reinsurer is assuming the risk to prevent a significant drain of the insurer's surplus. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
