IIABL issued a notice about LDI Directive 211 – Change of Producer of Record. On June 28th, 2018, the Louisiana Department of Insurance (LDI) issued Directive 211 outlining the provisions of R.S. 22:1564 which controls the change of producer of record in Louisiana. The message, from IIABL Executive Director Jeff Albright, urges member agents to distribute to agency staff the Directive, and use the information if insurers refuse to recognize producer of record letters. Directive 211 states:

“All insurers, including surplus lines insurers, who receive a request in writing from the owner of the policy or the first-named insured to change or remove the producer of record shall comply with the law and make the change or removal of the “producer of record” as set forth in La. R.S. 22:1564. Any insurer who refuses to accept a written request and recognize a change in the “producer of record” from the owner of the policy or the first-named insured may be in violation of La. R.S. 22:1564 and subject to regulatory sanctions.”
