The Legislative Service Commission staff updates the Revised Code on an ongoing basis, as it completes its act review of enacted legislation. Updates may be slower during some times of the year, depending on the volume of enacted legislation.

Section 3951.04 | Issuing or denying certificate of authority.


The superintendent of insurance shall issue certificates of authority to any person, firm, association, partnership, or corporation making application therefor who is trustworthy and competent to act as a public insurance adjuster in such manner as to safeguard the interest of the public and who has complied with the prerequisites herein described. A certificate of authority issued to a firm, association, partnership, or corporation shall authorize only the members of the firm, association, or partnership or the officers and directors of the corporation, specified in the certificate of authority to act as a public insurance adjuster.

The superintendent shall not issue any certificate of authority to any applicant who is convicted of a disqualifying offense as determined under section 9.79 of the Revised Code, or who, within three years preceding the date of filing such application, has been guilty of any practice which would be grounds for suspension or revocation of a certificate of authority as a public insurance adjuster.

The Legislative Service Commission presents the text of this section as a composite of the section as amended by multiple acts of the General Assembly. This presentation recognizes the principle stated in R.C. 1.52(B) that amendments are to be harmonized if reasonably capable of simultaneous operation.
