TITLE 41
INSURANCE
CHAPTER 14
PROPERTY INSURANCE RATES
41-1438.  Two or more insurers may act in concert. (1) Subject to and in compliance with the provisions of this chapter authorizing insurers to be members or subscribers of rating or advisory organizations or to engage in joint underwriting or joint reinsurance, two (2) or more insurers may act in concert with each other and with others with respect to any matters pertaining to the making of rates or rating systems, the preparation or making of insurance policy or bond forms, underwriting rules, surveys, inspections and investigations, the furnishing of loss or expense statistics or other information and data, or carrying on of research.
(2)  With respect to any matters pertaining to the making of rates or rating systems, the preparation or making of insurance policy or bond forms, underwriting rules, surveys, inspections and investigations, the furnishing of loss or expense statistics or other information and data, or carrying on of research, two (2) or more authorized insurers having a common ownership or operating in the state under common management or control, are hereby authorized to act in concert between or among themselves the same as if they constituted a single insurer, and to the extent that such matters relate to co-surety bonds, two (2) or more authorized insurers executing such bond are hereby authorized to act in concert between or among themselves the same as if they constituted a single insurer.
(3)  Members and subscribers of rating or advisory organizations may use the rates, rating systems, underwriting rules or policy or bond forms of such organizations, either consistently or intermittently, but except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, section 41-1426 (joint underwriting or joint reinsurance), and section 41-1441 (assigned risks) of this act, shall not agree with each other or rating organizations or others to adhere thereto. The fact that two (2) or more authorized insurers, whether or not members or subscribers of a rating or advisory organization, use, either consistently or intermittently, the rates or rating systems made or adopted by a rating organization, or the underwriting rules or policy or bond forms prepared by a rating or advisory organization, shall not be sufficient in itself to support a finding that an agreement to so adhere exists, and may be used only for the purpose of supplementing or explaining direct evidence of the existence of any such agreement.
(4)  Licensed rating organizations and authorized insurers are authorized to exchange information and experience data with rating organizations and insurers in this and other states and may consult with them with respect to rate making and the application of rating systems.
(5)  Upon compliance with the provisions of this chapter applicable thereto any rating organization, advisory organization, and any group, association or other organization of authorized insurers which engages in joint underwriting or joint reinsurance through such organization or by standing agreement among the members thereof, may conduct operations in this state. As respects insurance risks or operations in this state, no insurer shall be a member or subscriber of any such organization, group or association that has not complied with the provisions of this chapter applicable to it.
