Section 27-29B-1

Purpose and scope.

(a) The purpose of this chapter is to do all of the following:

(2) Outline the requirements for completing a corporate governance annual disclosure with the commissioner.

(3) Provide for the confidential treatment of the corporate governance annual disclosure and related information that will contain confidential and sensitive information related to an insurer or insurance group's internal operations and proprietary and trade secret information which, if made public, could potentially cause the insurer or insurance group competitive harm or disadvantage.

(b) Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to prescribe or impose corporate governance standards and internal procedures beyond the procedures that are required under applicable state corporate law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing in this chapter shall be construed to limit the authority of the commissioner, or the rights or obligations of third parties, under Chapter 2.

(c) The requirements of this chapter shall apply to all insurers domiciled in this state.
