The National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) has just announced that Massachusetts is participating in its electronic licensing system. The Bay State is now active on the NIPR system for resident licensing renewal transactions and on August 18th they are scheduled to be active for  non-resident renewals.

PIA, which has a seat on the NIPR board, applauds this accomplishment toward a "one stop shopping" licensing platform.

"This is excellent news for independent agents who increasingly operate in multiple jurisdictions," said PIA Assistant Vice President for Regulatory Affairs David Eppstein. "The ability to obtain and maintain licenses electronically allows Main Street agents to focus on what they do best, serving consumers. This is also good news for supporters of state regulation, as it demonstrates that the states can work together to implement an integrated nationwide insurance licensing system without federal preemption."
