      Section: 17:47A-3: Requirements for establishment of risk retention group

           3. a. Any person wishing to establish a risk retention group chartered and licensed to write only liability insurance in this State shall, in addition to meeting the requirements pursuant to R.S.17:17-1 et seq., submit to the commissioner, on a form prescribed by the commissioner, a plan of operation or feasibility study. The risk retention group shall submit an appropriate revision in the event of any subsequent material change in any item of the plan of operation or feasibility study, within 10 days of any such change. The group shall not offer any additional kinds of liability insurance in this State, or in any other state, until a revision of such plan or study is approved by the commissioner.

b. At the time of filing its application for charter, the risk retention group shall provide to the commissioner in summary form the following information, upon receipt of which the commissioner shall forward this information to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners:

(1) the identity of the initial members of the group;



(2) the identity of those individuals who organized the group or who will provide administrative services or otherwise influence or control the activities of the group;

(3) the amount and nature of initial capitalization;



(4) the coverages to be afforded; and



(5) the states in which the group intends to operate.



Providing this information to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners is in addition to, and shall not be deemed to satisfy, the requirements of this act.

c. Each risk retention group chartered in this State pursuant to this act shall be chartered and licensed to write only liability insurance in this State as provided in R.S.17:17-1 et seq., and is subject to the provisions of R.S.17:17-1 et seq. to the extent it is applied to insurers chartered and licensed in this State.

d. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, all risk retention groups chartered in this State shall file an annual statement in the form adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and completed in accordance with its instructions and the National Association of Insurance Commissioners Accounting Practices and Procedures Manual and all applicable statutes and administrative rules. Additionally, all risk retention groups chartered in this State shall file quarterly statements covering the periods ending on March 31, June 30, and September 30, which statements shall be filed within 45 days after the end of each quarterly period. Quarterly statements shall be confidential and shall not be subject to public inspection or copying pursuant to the provisions of P.L.1963, c.73 (C.47:1A-1 et seq.).

e. Every risk retention group chartered in this State shall provide the following notice in 10-point, boldface type, in every policy of insurance issued by the group:
