§ 27-17-6. Certificate of authority to do business.
If it shall appear upon examination by the commissioner that an exchange or interinsurer has complied with all of the requirements of this chapter and that the persons holding positions of executive and managerial authority are of good repute and will conduct the affairs of the exchange with safety to the public and its policyholders, the commissioner shall issue a certificate stating that the exchange or interinsurer has complied with all of the requirements of this chapter which shall authorize the exchange or interinsurer to transact the kind of business specifically provided in the certificate. The certificate shall expire on the first day of April of the following year, and shall be renewed every year as of the first day of April of that year. The commissioner may, after a hearing, revoke or suspend any certificate of authority issued pursuant to this section, in the case of violation of any of the provisions of this chapter, after reasonable notice of the hearing has been given to the attorney in fact in writing, which notice shall be sufficiently adequate to allow the attorney in fact to appear and show cause why the action should not be taken.
