AS 21.39.130. Rate Administration.

(a) The director shall adopt reasonable regulations and statistical plans, reasonably adapted to each of the rating systems filed with the director, that may be modified and that shall be used by each insurer in the recording and reporting of its loss and countrywide expense experience, in order that the experience of all insurers may be made available at least annually in the form and detail that may be necessary to aid in determining whether rating systems comply with the standards set out in AS 21.39.030 . The regulations and plans may also provide for the recording and reporting of expense experience items that are specially applicable to this state and are not susceptible of determination by a prorating of countrywide expense experience. In adopting the regulations and plans, the director shall give due consideration to the rating systems filed with the director and, in order that the regulations and plans may be as uniform as is practicable among the several states, to the regulations and to the form of the plans used for the rating systems in other states. An insurer may not be required to record or report its loss experience on a classification basis that is inconsistent with the rating system filed by it. The director may designate one or more rating organizations or other agencies to assist in gathering the experience and making compilations. The compilations shall be made available, subject to reasonable regulations adopted by the director, to insurers and rating organizations.

(b) Reasonable regulations and plans may be adopted by the director for the interchange of data necessary for the application of rating plans.

(c) In order to further uniform administration of rate regulatory laws, the director and each insurer and rating organization may exchange information and experience data with insurance supervisory officials, insurers, and rating organizations in other states and may consult with them with respect to rate making and the application of rating systems.

(d) The director may adopt reasonable regulations necessary to carry out the purposes of this chapter.
