(b) If an insurer, reinsurer, or authorized representative discovers information showing that the appointee whose appointment was terminated has engaged in an activity identified in AS 21.27.410 during the period of the appointment, the insurer, reinsurer, or authorized representative shall, on a form or in a format prescribed by the director, promptly notify the director.
(c) Within 15 days after providing notification in accordance with (b) of this section, the insurer, reinsurer, or authorized representative shall mail a copy of the notification to the appointee at the last address on record with the insurer, reinsurer, or authorized representative. The notice must be provided by certified mail, return receipt requested, postage prepaid, or by overnight delivery using a nationally recognized mail carrier.
(d) Within 30 days after the appointee receives notification in accordance with (c) of this section, the appointee may file written comments concerning the substance of the notification with the director and shall provide a copy of the written comments to the insurer, reinsurer, or authorized representative. The written comments filed with the director must be included with each report distributed or disclosed concerning a reason about the termination of the appointment.
