NAIC Model Laws, Regulations, Guidelines, and Other Resources
This comprehensive six-volume set provides quick access to every NAIC model law, regulation, and guideline currently published. Included with every model is a state action page that cites each state's enacted model or similar legislation. Many models also include a legislative history (Proceedings Citations) that explains why the model was adopted and why certain provisions were included. In 2019 the subscription added Compendium of State Laws that pertain to one or more NAIC Model Laws and will be made available online through the NAIC's Account Manager with the purchase of a Model Laws product. The Table of Contents for the Model Laws products will include an index of the compatible charts for cross referencing (Related Charts: State Laws on Insurance Topics) and the charts themselves will be available via a link in the NAIC's Account Manager system. Published three times annually following the NAIC's Spring, Summer, and Fall National Meetings.
New in 2020 - the Model Laws will no longer be offered electronically on USB (the MDL-ZR product). Instead, the publication will be offered as a PDF via an online subscription service (OSS). This new subscription service provides access to the published version of the 6-volume set, as well as two updates during the current year. Updates to the publication will be uploaded to the OSS platform as they become available following each national meeting. Subscriptions are specific to an individual user and access to the platform requires a redemption code, which will be provided via email following verification of the purchase.
NAIC Model Bulletins
These documents are generally used by insurance departments to notify companies and/or producers on how the department intends to interpret an issue. Bulletins do not generally carry the force of law, though they may be used to notify interested parties of adoptions or changes to existing law. The bulletins are developed through discussions at NAIC committees and task forces, with input from interested parties.
White papers serve as a vehicle to describe NAIC policy discussions and recommendations on a number of insurance issues. The papers are developed through discussion at NAIC committees and task forces, with input from interested parties.
