Insurance, Title and Escrow Commission

Rule R592-1

Title Insurance Licensing

Five-Year Notice of Review and Statement of Continuation

DAR File No.: 34078
Filed: 09/15/2010 10:37:53 AM


Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Subsections 31A-2-404(2)(a)(ii) and (b) direct the Title and Escrow Commission to make rules pertaining to the licensing of a title licensee and require the concurrence of the Commission in the issuance and renewal of title licensee licenses.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The department has not received any written comments regarding this rule in the past five years.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The law requires that the Title and Escrow Commission concur with the commissioner in the issuance and renewal of title licenses. The rule sets the procedure to do this. This has been a useful process because it has opened a dialogue between the department and members of the title industry who know the players and if there are issues and concerns that should be addressed regarding licensure. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
