- The administrator of the bureau of workers' compensation has the same authority as the commissioner of commerce and insurance to request and obtain relevant information on workers' compensation claims. All workers' compensation insurers or their designated agents, self insurers and the department of commerce and insurance shall report claims information and other relevant workers' compensation data necessary to determine and analyze costs of the system to the administrator of the bureau of workers' compensation or to the agents as the administrator may designate. The administrator may promulgate all reasonable rules and regulations necessary to implement this section in accordance with the Uniform Administrative Procedures Act, compiled in title 4, chapter 5.
- In promulgating rules concerning data collection, the administrator of the bureau of workers' compensation shall include appropriate elements of the Detailed Claim Information Reporting Model Regulation for Workers' Compensation Insurance issued by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, and other information the administrator deems necessary. The administrator shall also consult with the advisory council on workers' compensation in defining the information needed to permit management of the system. The administrator shall also report to the commerce and labor committee of the senate and the consumer and human resources committee of the house of representatives at the request of the chairs of the committees.
- The bureau of workers' compensation shall gather, and has the duty to analyze and report, information relevant to the functioning of the workers' compensation system to the advisory council on workers' compensation, the general assembly and the governor. The bureau shall respond to information requests concerning workers' compensation issues from the advisory council on workers' compensation, the general assembly and the governor.
- The administrator of the workers' compensation bureau shall enforce requests pursuant to this section in the same manner and with the same authority as the commissioner of commerce and insurance possesses with respect to violations of this part and title 56.

The administrator's enforcement authority under this subsection (c) applies only to the administrator's efforts to obtain relevant data as provided in subsections (a) and (b).
