- Insurance Agencies Designated Licensed Producers
Effective July 1, 2016, insurance agencies are required to maintain a Designated Licensed Producer (DLP) responsible for the agency's compliance with insurance laws and regulations. The DLP must be an employee, officer, or director of the agency. With respect to a business entity holding certain types of a limited lines license, the DLP is not required to be an employee, officer, or director of the vendor or lessor. Business entities are required within 30 calendar days to report the removal of the DLP and the name of the new DLP. This makes DLP requirements uniform among various lines of insurance.
Review and make updates to the business entity DLP (Supporting Agent) via Sircon’s Compliance Express service by accessing www.sircon.com/virginia and clicking on Maintain your firm association link located on the menu on the left side of the page. A nominal Sircon service fee may apply.
