Producer Licensing

PIA supports modernizing the existing regulation of producer licensing through state insurance departments. This system has proven to be the most effective system for protecting consumers and maintaining a vibrant marketplace for industry. PIA:

  • Is committed to achieving a modern, nationwide insurance producer licensing system utilizing model laws and regulations such as the Producer Licensing Model Act (PLMA) and electronic facilitators, such as the National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR).
  • Supports state based efforts to increase licensing reciprocity and uniformity.
  • Supports narrowly targeted federal legislation, such as NARAB II, that would facilitate reciprocity without creating a new federal insurance bureaucracy.
  • Supports the efforts of state organizations, such as NCOIL and the NAIC, to promote uniform state laws and regulations.
