State Licensing Handbook

The purpose of the State Licensing Handbook is to give guidance to state insurance departments and regulated entities on how to administer a producer licensing program. It is based on the NAIC's Producer Licensing Model Act, the Uniform Licensing Standards and all guidelines that have been adopted by the Producer Licensing (EX) Working Group. The Handbook includes information on other licenses that a state licensing director may administer, i.e. adjusters. The Handbook assists regulators in continued movement toward uniformity in procedures among the states. The handbook also contains suggested 'best practices' in administering a state licensing program.
