Any member of or subscriber to a rating organization may appeal to the superintendent of insurance from the action or decision of such rating organization in approving or rejecting any proposed change in or addition to the filings of such rating organization and the superintendent shall, after a hearing held upon not less than ten days' written notice to the appellant and to such rating organization, issue an order approving the action or decision of such rating organization or directing it to give further consideration to such proposal. If such appeal is from the action or decision of the rating organization in rejecting a proposed addition to its filings, the superintendent may, in the event he finds that such action or decision was unreasonable, issue an order directing the rating organization to make an addition to its filings, on behalf of its members and subscribers, in a manner consistent with his findings, within a reasonable time after the issuance of such order.
If such appeal is based upon the failure of the rating organization to make a filing on behalf of such member or subscriber which is based on a system of expense provisions which differs, in accordance with the right granted in division (B) of section 3937.02 of the Revised Code, from the system of expense provisions included in a filing made by the rating organization, the superintendent shall, if he grants the appeal, order the rating organization to make the requested filing for use by the appellant. In deciding such appeal the superintendent shall apply the standards set forth in division (B) of section 3937.02 of the Revised Code.
