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:
Subsection 31A-2-201(3) authorizes the commissioner to establish by rule specific requirements for filing forms, rates, or reports required by the Utah Insurance Code, Title 31A. Section 31A-2-202 authorizes the commissioner to require statements, reports, and information to be delivered to the department or the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) in a form specified by the commissioner. Section 31A-4-113 authorizes the commissioner to prescribe by rule the information to be submitted with, and the form of, the annual statement. The rule provides instructions for the filing of annual and quarterly statements with supplementary schedules, exhibits, and documents by insurers.
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:
If this rule is not continued in force, it may create confusion for insurers regarding their quarterly and annual reporting requirements for the NAIC and the Utah Insurance Department. Annual and quarterly statements may be filed incorrectly more frequently, resulting in costly and unnecessary follow-ups both by insurers and the department. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
