Need for Rules:
Senate Bill 251 (2019) repealed the insurance adjuster and insurance consultant licensing provisions that were commingled in ORS Chapter 744, and separately re-enacted such statutory provisions. Rulemaking is necessary to implement such re-enacted provisions – which now mandate that the form and manner of application for adjuster and consultant licensing, and for issuance of a temporary adjuster permit, be specified by rule, and that the examinations that are acceptable for purpose of licensing be recognized by rule.
The proposed rulemaking will amend the current rules to specify the form and manner of making application for an adjuster or consultant license, or for a temporary adjuster permit, and recognize certain examinations as adequately testing applicant qualifications, competence and knowledge. The rulemaking will also make technical corrections to the rules, by substituting reference to the 2019 Session Laws for the statutory provisions that have been repealed and re-enacted in such Session Laws.
