On May 14, 2016, Pennsylvania issued Bulletin No. 16-819, advising that the Pennsylvania Insurance Department amended Chapter 161 of the Pennsylvania Insurance Code related to the requirements for qualified and certified reinsurers. The change made to the Chapter was deleting the requirement that a reinsurer be listed on the successor list to the Non-Admitted Insurance Listing (now known as the ”Quarterly Listing of Alien Insurers”) published by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) to be considered for qualification under Section 319.1 of the Code. This amendment conforms Pennsylvania’s regulation to the model law and regulation developed by the NAIC entitled ”Credit for Reinsurance Model Law” and ”Credit for Reinsurance Model Regulation.” The change to the Pennsylvania Insurance Code will take effect on June 13, 2016.
