Mandatory control level event.

(1) "Mandatory control level event" means any of the following events:
(a) The filing of an RBS report which indicates that the fraternal benefit society's total adjusted surplus is less than its mandatory control level RBS;
(b) Notification by the commissioner to the fraternal benefit society of an adjusted RBS report that indicates the event in (a) of this subsection, provided the fraternal benefit society does not challenge the adjusted RBS report under WAC 284-36A-060; or
(c) If, pursuant to WAC 284-36A-060, the fraternal benefit society challenges an adjusted RBS report that indicates the event in (a) of this subsection, notification by the commissioner to the fraternal benefit society that the commissioner has, after a hearing, rejected the fraternal benefit society's challenge.
(2) In the event of a mandatory control level event, the commissioner shall take such actions as are necessary to place the fraternal benefit society under regulatory control under RCW 48.36A.286. In that event, the mandatory control level event shall be deemed sufficient grounds for the commissioner to take action under RCW 48.36A.286, and the commissioner shall have the rights, powers and duties with respect to the fraternal benefit society as are set forth in chapter 48.31 RCW. If the commissioner takes actions pursuant to an adjusted RBS report, the fraternal benefit society shall be entitled to the protections of RCW 48.31.121 pertaining to summary proceedings. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, the commissioner may forego action for up to ninety days after the mandatory control level event if the commissioner finds there is a reasonable expectation that the mandatory control level event may be eliminated within the ninety-day period.
