A title insurer may authorize a third-party filer to file rates on its behalf. For the purposes of this section, "third-party filer" means a person or entity in the business of providing insurance regulatory compliance services.
(1) If a title insurer delegates filing authority to a third-party filer, each filing must include as supporting documentation a letter signed by an officer of the title insurer authorizing the third-party filer to make filings on behalf of the title insurer.
(2) The title insurer may not delegate responsibility for the content of a filing to a third-party filer. The commissioner considers errors and omissions made by the third-party filer to be errors and omissions of the title insurer.
(3) If a third-party filer has a pattern of making filings that do not comply with this chapter, the commissioner may reject a delegation of filing authority from the title insurer.
