Regulator

We’re here to serve you and your mission. Our goal is to bring state regulators together to serve the public interest. We provide tools and resources to help regulators set standards and best practices, provide regulatory support functions, and educate consumers and stakeholders on U.S. state-based insurance regulation.

The Power of Uniting and Uplifting Insurance Regulators

In order to ensure our members can protect consumers and keep markets competitive, we are responsive to each state’s diverse and market-specific risks. NAIC provides tools and education so regulators can perform their jobs with knowledge and intent. 

Ensuring State Law Compliance

We ensure insurance policy forms and rates comply with state laws and enforce state laws relating to company conduct.

Developing Professional Standards

We develop training programs and establish professional standards.

Protecting Consumer Interests

We manage extensive systems of peer-reviewed, multi-state oversight and accreditation programs and provide education, training and accreditation programs to regulators at all levels.
