The commissioner shall, at least once in five (5) years, make or cause to be made an examination of each rating organization licensed in this state as provided in § 27-6-23 and the commissioner may, as often as he or she may deem it expedient, make or cause to be made an examination of each advisory organization referred to in § 27-6-33 and of each group, association, or other organization referred to in § 27-6-37. The total cost of those examinations shall be borne by the examined organization and shall be one hundred fifty percent (150%) of the total salaries paid to the examining personnel of the banking and insurance division engaged in those examinations less any salary reimbursements and shall be paid to the insurance commissioner to and for the use of the state. This assessment shall be in addition to any taxes and fees payable to the state. The officers, manager, agents, and employees of the rating organization, advisory organization, or group, association, or other organization may be examined at any time under oath and shall exhibit all books, records, accounts, documents, or agreements governing its method of operation. In lieu of any examination the commissioner may accept the report of an examination made by the insurance supervisory official of another state, pursuant to the laws of that state.
