Section 27-2-22

Examinations - Examiners.

(a) The commissioner may conduct any such examination in person or by examiners regularly employed and commissioned by him in writing for the purpose. No person shall be eligible for designation as an examiner to examine an insurer unless by reason of experience as an accountant, auditor, or examiner of financial institutions or other special experience, education, or training he is capable of adequately discharging the responsibilities of such an examiner.

(b) At any time, when examiners who are regular officers or employees of the department are not available for the purpose, the commissioner may specially appoint and employ a competent examiner, or examiners, for the purpose of making a particular examination. The special examiner shall be compensated and reimbursed for expenses in the same manner as provided for regular examiners under Section 27-2-25, but shall not have any status in the classified service of the state.
