The Producer Licensing (EX) Working Group will:

  1. Monitor the implementation of the Uniform Licensing Standards for best practices in examination development and the delivery of education materials for prelicensing education. Work closely with state producer licensing directors and exam vendors to ensure: 1) the states achieve full compliance with the standards in order to achieve greater uniformity; and 2) the exams test the qualifications for an entry-level position as a producer.
  2. Continue to provide oversight and ongoing updates, as needed, to the State Licensing Handbook.
  3. Provide updated reciprocity guidelines and ongoing maintenance and review of uniform application forms for continuing education providers and the state review and approval of courses.
  4. Coordinate through NAIC staff and provide guidance to NIPR on producer licensing-related electronic initiatives.
  5. Coordinate with NAIC parent committees, task forces and/or working groups to review and provide recommendations on any new producer training requirements or continuing education requirements that are included in NAIC model acts, regulations and/or standards.
  6. Monitor state implementation of adjuster licensing reciprocity and develop minimum adjuster licensing standards to ensure appropriate consumer protections are in place with the implementation of the use of "designated home state."
  7. Monitor and assess the state implementation of the Uniform Licensing Standards and update the standards, as needed.
  8. Review and update, as needed, the NAIC's uniform producer and adjuster licensing applications and uniform appointment form.
  9. Coordinate with the Market Information Systems (D) Task Force and the Antifraud (D) Task Force to evaluate and make recommendations regarding the entry, retention and use of data in the NAIC's Market Information Systems.
