§ 27-2.4-1. Purpose and scope.
(a) This chapter governs the qualifications and procedures for the licensing of insurance producers. It simplifies and organizes some statutory language to improve efficiency, permits the use of new technology and reduces costs associated with issuing and renewing insurance licenses. This chapter does not apply to excess and surplus lines agents and brokers licensed pursuant to § 27-3-38 except as provided in §§ 27-2.4-10 and 27-2.4-17.
(b) Whenever the words "agent", "solicitor", or "broker" and their plural construct are used in the context of a licensee pursuant to chapter 3 of this title and occur in this chapter, any general law, public law, act or resolution of the general assembly or department of business regulation, those words mean insurance producer, except for those provisions of law and regulation which govern excess and surplus lines agents or brokers licensed pursuant to § 27-3-38.
