- (e) A domestic insurer's report of nonrenewal, cancellation, or revision of a ceded reinsurance agreement
- (1) shall be made under (a) of this section if the nonrenewal, cancellation, or revision is material; for purposes of this
subsection, a material nonrenewal, cancellation, or revision is one that affects (A) for property and casualty
business, including accident and health business when written as property and casualty business, more than 50 percent
of an insurer's ceded written premium; or (B) for life, annuity, and accident and health business, more than 50 percent
of the total reserve credit taken for business ceded, on an annualized basis as indicated in the insurer's most
recently filed statutory statement; however, a filing is not required if the insurer's ceded written premium or the
total reserve credit taken for business ceded represents, on an annual basis, less than 10 percent of direct written
premiums and assumed written premiums or 10 percent of the statutory reserve requirement before a cession;
- (2) shall be filed without regard to which party has initiated the nonrenewal, cancellation, or revision of ceded
reinsurance whenever any of the following conditions exist:
- (A) the entire cession has been cancelled, nonrenewed, or revised and ceded indemnity and loss adjustment expense reserves
after a nonrenewal, cancellation, or revision represent less than 50 percent of the comparable reserves that would have
been ceded had the nonrenewal, cancellation, or revision not occurred;
- (B) an admitted or accredited reinsurer has been replaced on an existing cession by an unauthorized reinsurer; however, a
report shall be filed only if the result of the revision affects more than 10 percent of the cession; or

be filed only if the result of the revision affects more than 10 percent of the cession; and
- (3) must include
- (A) the effective date of the nonrenewal, cancellation, or revision;
- (B) a description of the transaction with an identification of the initiator of the transaction;
- (C) the purpose of, or reason for, the transaction; and
- (D) if applicable, the identity of the replacement reinsurers.
- (f) An insurer is required to report under (a) of this section on a nonconsolidated basis unless the insurer is part of a
consolidated group of insurers that utilizes a pooling arrangement or 100 percent reinsurance agreement that affects
the solvency and integrity of the insurer's reserves and the insurer ceded substantially all of its direct and assumed
business to the pool. An insurer is presumed to have ceded substantially all of its direct and assumed business to a
pool if the insurer has less than $1,000,000 total direct written premiums and assumed written premiums during a
calendar year that is not subject to a pooling arrangement and the net income of the business not subject to the
pooling arrangement represents less than five percent of the insurer's capital and surplus.
