(a) Upon placing surplus lines insurance coverage, the surplus lines broker shall promptly issue and deliver to the insured or the producer the policy, or if the policy is not then available, a certificate as described in subsection (f) of this section, cover note, binder or other evidence of the insurance. The certificate described in subsection (f) of this section, cover note, binder or other evidence of insurance shall be executed by the broker and shall show the description and location of the subject of the insurance, coverages including any material limitations other than those in standard forms, a general description of the coverages of the insurance, the premium and rate charged, taxes to be collected from the insured, the name and address of the insured and surplus lines insurer or insurers and the proportion of the entire risk assumed by each and the name and license number of the surplus lines broker.
(b) No broker shall issue or deliver any evidence of insurance or purport to insure or represent that insurance will be or has been written by any nonadmitted insurer, unless the broker has:
(i) The insurer's prior written authority for the insurance;
(ii) Received information from the insurer in the regular course of business that the insurance has been granted; or
(iii) Received an insurance policy specifying the insurer has actually issued the insurance and delivered it to the insured.
(c) If after the issuance and delivery of any evidence of insurance there is any change as to the insurer's identity, or the proportion of the risk assumed by any insurer or any other material change in coverage as stated in the surplus lines broker's original evidence of insurance or in any other material as to the insurance coverage so evidenced, the surplus lines broker shall promptly issue and deliver to the insured or the original producer an appropriate substitute for, or endorsement of the original document, accurately showing the current status of the coverage and the insurers responsible for the coverage.
(d) Repealed By Laws 2012, Ch. 37, § 3.
(e) Any surplus lines broker who knowingly or negligently issues a false certificate or other evidence of insurance, or who fails promptly to notify the insured of any material change with respect to the insurance by delivery to the insured of a substitute certificate, cover note, binder or other evidence of insurance as provided in subsection (c) of this section, upon conviction, is subject to the penalty provided by W.S. 26-1-107 or to any greater applicable penalty otherwise provided by law.
(f) As soon as reasonably possible after the placement of the insurance, the surplus lines broker shall deliver a copy of the policy or, if not available, a certificate of insurance to the insured or producer to replace any evidence of insurance previously issued. Each certificate or policy of insurance shall contain or have attached a complete record of all policy insuring agreements, conditions, exclusions, clauses, endorsements or any other material facts that would regularly be included in the policy.
