Continuing Education Reciprocity Agreement

In 2019 the Working Group reviewed the Continuing Education Reciprocity (CER) Agreement.

The agreement will be presented to the Executive Committee during the Summer National Meeting for final adoption. The adopted draft is attached below.

In response to the extension of the CARES Act, this exposure proposes a similar extension of INT 20-03; i.e., until the earlier of Jan. 1, 2022, or 60 days after the national emergency regarding COVID-19 terminates.

2020-39 Appendix F Interpretation Policy Statement Appendix F—Policy Statements: Revisions clarify the issuance and adoption process of accounting interpretations in the NAIC Policy Statement on Maintenance of Statutory Accounting Principles.
2020-40 Preamble Prescribed Practices Revisions clarify that while any state in which a company is licensed can issue prescribed practices, the prescribed practices directed by the domiciliary state shall be reflected in the financial statements filed with the NAIC and are the financial statements subject to independent audit requirements.
