UNAUTHORIZED INSURERS AND SURPLUS LINES
41-1216. Open lines for export. (1) The director may by order or by rule declare eligible for export generally and without compliance with the provisions of sections 41-1214(2), 41-1214(3) and 41-1215, Idaho Code, any class or classes of insurance coverage or risk which he finds, consistent with the procedural requirements of chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code, that there is no reasonable or adequate market among authorized insurers either as to acceptance of the risk, contract terms, or premium or premium rate. Any such order shall continue in effect during the existence of the conditions upon which predicated, but subject to earlier termination by the director.
(2) The broker shall file with or as directed by the director a memorandum as to each such coverage placed by him in an unauthorized insurer, in such form and context as the director may reasonably require for the identification of the coverage and determination of the tax payable to the state relative thereto.
(3) The broker, or a licensed Idaho agent of the authorized insurer, may also place with authorized insurers any insurance coverage made eligible for export generally under subsection (1) of this section and without regard to rate or form filings which may otherwise be applicable as to the authorized insurer. As to coverages so placed in an authorized insurer the premium tax thereon shall be reported and paid by the insurer as required generally under section 41-402, Idaho Code.
