17B:32-52. Provision of information to liquidator by agents, licensing affected
22. a. Every person who receives notice, in the form prescribed in section 21 of this act, that an insurer which he represents as an agent is the subject of a liquidation order, shall within 30 days of such notice provide to the liquidator, in addition to the information he may be required to provide pursuant to section 6 of this act, the information in the agent's records related to any policy issued by the insurer through the agent, and, if the agent is a general agent, the information in the general agent's records related to any policy issued by the insurer through an agent under contract to him, including the name and address of such subagent. A policy shall be deemed issued through an agent if the agent has a property interest in the expiration of the policy, or if the agent has had in his possession a copy of the declarations of the policy at any time during the life of the policy, except where the ownership of the expiration of the policy has been transferred to another.
b. The commissioner may refuse to renew a license, or may suspend or revoke a license, if he finds after notice and an opportunity for a hearing that an agent has failed to provide information to the liquidator as required in subsection a. of this section. In addition or an alternative to any other penalty, the commissioner may, after a hearing, impose an administrative penalty of not more than $10,000 for each violation of this section.
