§ 27-32-6 Prerequisites to delivery of contract Qualification of company.
No domestic life insurance company, and no other life insurance company admitted to transact business in this state, shall be authorized to deliver within this state any agreement providing benefits in variable amounts until the company has satisfied the insurance commissioner that its condition or methods of operation in connection with the issuance of those agreements will not render its operation hazardous to the public or its policyholders in this state. In determining the qualification of a company requesting authority to deliver the contracts within this state, the insurance commissioner shall consider, among other things:
(1) The history and financial condition of the company;
(2) The character, responsibility, and general fitness of the officers and directors of the company; and
(3) In the case of a company other than a domestic company, whether the regulation provided by the jurisdiction of its incorporation provides a degree of protection to policyholders and the public which is substantially equal to that provided by this chapter and the rules and regulations issued pursuant to this chapter.
