A. As used in this section, “remit” means:

(1) to make direct payments of money to a licensee or its representative authorized to receive money;  or

(2) to deposit money in a bank in an account specified by the licensee.

B. A contract between a licensee and an authorized delegate shall require the authorized delegate to operate in full compliance with the Uniform Money Services Act.  The licensee shall furnish in a record to each authorized delegate policies and procedures sufficient for compliance with the Uniform Money Services Act.

C. For each authorized delegate, the licensee shall maintain records that demonstrate the licensee conducted a reasonable background investigation of each authorized delegate.  A licensee shall preserve those records for at least five years after the authorized delegate's most recent designation by the licensee.

D. An authorized delegate shall remit all money owing to the licensee in accordance with the terms of the contract between the licensee and the authorized delegate.

E. If a license is suspended or revoked or a licensee does not renew its license, the director shall notify all authorized delegates of the licensee whose names are in a record filed with the director of the suspension, revocation or nonrenewal.  After notice is sent or publication is made, an authorized delegate shall immediately cease to provide money services as a delegate of the licensee.

F. An authorized delegate shall not provide money services outside the scope of activity permissible pursuant to the contract between the authorized delegate and the licensee, except activity in which the authorized delegate is authorized to engage pursuant to Article 2, 3 or 4 of the Uniform Money Services Act.  An authorized delegate of a licensee holds in trust for the benefit of the licensee all money net of fees received from money transmission.

G. An authorized delegate shall not use a subdelegate to conduct money services on behalf of a licensee.

H. Whenever a licensee first advises the director of the identity of a proposed delegate, the licensee shall pay a nonrefundable fee of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) for each proposed delegate.
