The program affects all insurance carriers issuing motor vehicle liability insurance in the State of Arkansas.

Those carriers must report all motor vehicle liability insurance coverage in effect to the Department on a monthly basis. The information to be reported includes policy and vehicle information. This data will be used to establish an insurance database.

As of January 1998, all activity occurring during the previous month must be submitted to the Department by the seventh day of each month. Prior to sending the initial transmission of information, the carriers must be approved through the initial process and be prepared to begin monthly reporting. The insurance information submitted must be in a format specified in this manual. See Section 2 - Reporting Process.

The Department will use the insurance information received to identify and flag registered vehicles that are " nsured. The vehicle identification number (VIN) must match the one on the registration.

All information supplied to the Department by an insurance carrier is retained as a confidential record used for enforcement and regulatory purposes only.

Self-insured information is provided by the Safety Responsibility Division.

REQUIREMENTS

1. This program applies to all insurance carriers issuing motor vehicle liability insurance in Arkansas.
2. Every insurance carrier must report all existing policies providing liability insurance coverage for all motor vehicles registered in Arkansas, if known, or based in Arkansas if registration information is not known.

Refer to the "Initial Insurance Database Creation Process" for reporting details.

3. As of January 7, 1998 every insurance carrier must report the previous month's motor vehicle liability insurance activity by the seventh day of each month. Reporting must occur at least monthly, but can be done weekly, if approved by the Department.
4. The method of submitting insurance records to the Department and the contents of those records must comply with the standards developed by the Department.

Refer to the "Technical Specifications" in Section 4.

5. Insurance records received by the Department containing errors are returned to the insurance carrier for correction.

The insurance carrier has 30 days to correct records submitted with edit errors. The insurance carrier should attempt to resolve other types of errors caused by invalid vehicle identification numbers and no matching insurance records within 60 days.

6. A carrier must notify the Department in writing when they no longer have any active motor vehicle liability policies in force nor plan to issue any future policies in the State of Arkansas.
7. The Department will notify insurance carriers at least 60 days in advance of any reporting requirement changes.

SECTION 2

REPORTING PROCESS

INITIAL INSURANCE DATABASE CREATION PROCESS

The Initial Load:

Insurance Carriers will transmit all active policyholder information and VIN's to the Department using the "A" and "P" transaction requirements. This transmission will populate the Arkansas Insurance Database. This first transmission should be scheduled with the Department and completed within two reporting periods of the sale of a policy to an Arkansas registered vehicle. An Insurance Vehicle Transaction History file will also be maintained by the Department, to record all VIN related actions from the carriers.

1. All insurance carriers will provide the Department with the records of all "active automobile liability insurance coverage" in effect in Arkansas at that time.

Only submit active insurance records for the initial reporting process.

2. The report contents and media must comply with the requirements outlined in this manual.
3. The Department must receive the records within the second reporting cycle.
4. There will be a testing period before sending your initial information. The carrier must submit test data for validity checking. Please contact the Department to make arrangements. Contacts are listed in Section 5.
5. Insurance records received with format or invalid data errors will be returned to the insurance carrier. These must be corrected and resubmitted on the next transmission.
6. If the entire file rejects, the insurance carrier will be contacted by phone to resolve the problem as quickly as possible. The insurance carrier must make the corrections and resubmit the entire file in order to be credited with a transmission that period.
7. Only valid insurance records will be added to the Arkansas Vehicle Insurance Database.
8. Insurance records with format (edit) errors will not be added to the database.
9. Initial database creation process must be completed before the regular monthly reporting begins.

MONTHLY INSURANCE RECORD REPORTING PROCESS

Monthly Processing:

Each insurance carrier will transmit changed insurance VIN status on a scheduled basis each month. The Department will then consolidate all received transmissions and process them against the Arkansas Insurance Database. All accepted records will update the information into the Arkansas Insurance Database. The return transmission will indicate number of records received, processed and error records returned. All erred records will be transmitted back to the Insurance Carrier for resolution. This returned transmission should be available to the carrier within 2 workdays from the scheduled process. The carrier will be responsible for downloading the error file within 2 workdays of posting. This effort is needed to prepare for the next cycle. An Insurance Vehicle Transaction History file will also be maintained by the Department to record all VIN related received actions from the carriers.

The regular monthly reporting process has 4 steps:

1. The insurance carrier submits the previous month's insurance activity records to the Department.
2. The insurance records are processed.
3. The error records and a report of records processed are returned to the insurance carrier.
4. The insurance carrier corrects the errors and resubmits the corrected insurance records.
1. Insurance carrier submits insurance activity records.
A. Schedule

Records must be submitted at least monthly, but can be submitted more frequently upon Department approval. The monthly period is reflected as 30 days between transmissions. Any motor vehicle liability insurance coverage activity occurring in the previous month is reported by the reporting period of the current month.

For reporting purposes, the activity date can be the date the insurance record is recorded in the insurance carrier's home office or when the insurance carrier's database is updated. Policy information must be reported within 45 days of the effective date.

B. Format

The format for insurance record submission must comply with the Department's standards outlined in Section 4 "Technical Specifications".

C. Content

The record contents must comply with the "Insurance Record Reporting Requirements" outlined in Section 3 and "Technical Specifications" outlined in Section 4.

Transactions must be submitted when: new liability insurance is issued or a vehicle is added to a policy; a vehicle is no longer insured, i.e. the vehicle is removed from a policy, the insurance is not renewed, the insurance is canceled or terminated, or whenever the insurance is considered "out of force". The name and address information must be submitted anytime a new policy is submitted or when any of that information changes.

D. No Activity

Submit a "No Activity To Report Notice" to the Department when there has been no activity during the month.

E. Receipt Notification

The insurance carrier will be sent notification from the Department when an insurance report is received.

2. The insurance records are processed.

Records are processed in the order they are received.

A. Insurance records are first edited for format.

Records not meeting the edit criteria are rejected as "edit errors". The records are returned with the appropriate error code. The edits are described in detail in Section 4.

B. Insurance records with no errors.

Insurance records with no errors are put on the Arkansas Vehicle Insurance Database.

The matching process is by vehicle identification number (VIN). A registered vehicle is considered insured when the VIN on the Arkansas Insurance Database matches the VIN on a registration record. If the VIN is not found, and the type policy field indicates a "non-vehicle specific policy", the matching process checks the company name field and searches for an exact match with the registration record.

C. Invalid insurance records are returned.

Invalid insurance records are returned to the insurance carrier with the appropriate error code(s).

An invalid insurance record occurs when:

* a vin or other required fields are invalid

* an insurance terminated record is received, but no existing insurance record is found on file

* an error correction record is received, but no existing insurance record is found on file

3. The original record submission, error records, and statistical report are returned to the insurance carrier.

* If the report is submitted on paper, the error records are returned to the insurance carrier on a printed error report.

* If the report is submitted Advantis, the error records are returned Advantis.

* If the report is submitted by tape or cartridge and no Advantis mailbox exist, the error records are returned on a printed error report.

4. The insurance carrier corrects the errors and resubmits the corrected insurance records to the Department by their next transmission.

The insurance carrier has the option of resubmitting the corrected records separately, or as part of the next regular reporting.

INSURANCE CARRIERS ERROR CORRECTION PROCESS

The insurance carrier will receive notification of problems and corrections.

Invalid insurance records are returned from the Department as part of the regular monthly reporting process.

The insurance carrier should take the following actions:

1. If the correct information is not known, contact the insured to get the correct information.
2. Once the correct information is known, make the insurance record corrections and submit the necessary transactions as described in Section 4, "Technical Specifications".

DATABASE RECONCILIATION REQUEST

Insurance carriers may have a need for a listing or tape of the vehicles currently on file in the Insurance Network database, which their company has reported. The Insurance Verification office will arrange for this listing to be lade available upon a written request from the carrier. These requests will be handled individually and should De requested infrequently and on a need basis.

NOTIFICATION OF NON-COMPLIANCE PROCESS

Any insurance carrier who has not reported from the seventh of one month to the seventh of the next month will be sent a "Non-Reporting Notification Letter".

If an insurance carrier fails to report by the seventh of the following month, the Department will send an "Letter of Non-Compliance". This notice indicates non-compliance with the requirements of the program.

SECTION 3

INSURANCE RECORD REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

TYPES OF RECORDS REPORTED

1. Only motor vehicle liability insurance is reported.
2. All registered motor vehicles are included (automobiles, commercial vehicles, motor homes, rental cars, and motorcycles).

Do not report vehicles, which are not registered, i.e. vehicles used by automobile dealerships that have dealer plates/tags.

3. Only motor vehicles registered in Arkansas are reported. If the registration state is not known, submit records when the vehicle is garaged in Arkansas.
4. If the vehicle information is known, submit the record according to the instructions for vehicle specific insurance.
5. When reporting policies with blanket coverage and vehicle information is not required, these records should be submitted according to the instructions for non-vehicle specific insurance.

NON - STANDARD VIN REPORTING

Certain vehicles may have a non-standard VIN which will need to be reported. They may be classified as gray market - manufactured out of the country, kit cars, etc. or other special made vehicles, which may not pass the requirements of the VIN check for length and/or digit placement. These must be handled individually on a manual basis by paper reporting. A copy of the vehicle registration or other proof of the vehicle having a nonstandard VIN is required. After the carrier has verified with their insured that this is that type vehicle, contact the Insurance Verification Office for reporting instructions.

TYPES OF TRANSACTIONS REPORTED

1. ADD (A)

An "Add" transaction is used when liability coverage for a vehicle is initiated. When "vehicle specific" policies are being reported on "A" record is required for each VIN within a policy. When reporting "non-vehicle specific" policies only one "A" record is required for each policy, regardless of the number of vehicles covered. An Add is sent when:

* a new liability policy is issued

* a vehicle is added to an existing policy

* insurance is reinstated after it had been terminated (There was a lapse in coverage)

* a correction is needed. The Add (A) transaction with valid information follows a Delete (D) transaction

2. CANCELLATION (C)

Cancellation is used when a vehicle no longer has liability insurance coverage. A cancellation is sent when:

* liability coverage is terminated, canceled, or out of force

* a vehicle is dropped from an existing policy

* insurance is not renewed

3. DELETE (D)

The Delete is a correction transaction. It is used to delete a previously sent "Add" or "Cancellation" transaction that was accepted by the Department but contains invalid information.

4. NO DATA (N)

The No Data transaction code will be used when an insurance carrier has no information to report for a particular month or reporting period.

5. POLICY HOLDER'S PERSONAL DATA (P)

The Personal Data transaction code is used to provide the policyholder's name, company's name when applicable and address. One personal data transaction is required for each active policy with liability coverage regardless of the number of VINs with that policy. A "P" transaction must also be sent each time any data within the policyholder's personal data information changes. The policy number must match the policy number submitted on the related VIN's. The policyholder's data will be replaced with the latest information provided for that policy and NAIC. If incorrect information is submitted, submit a new "P" transaction with correct information.

6. MULTIPLE COMPANY NAMES FOR POLICYHOLDERS (M)

This transaction may only be used when reporting non-vehicle specific coverage. The "multiple company names" transaction code is used to identify insurance coverage of motor vehicles registered in Arkansas by "name search" only. This transaction gives the carrier the option of entering as many needed possible combination of names in which a company's vehicle might be registered.

Lapse in coverage:

If liability insurance coverage is "out of force" and then reinstated:

1. A cancellation (C transaction) is sent when the coverage is considered "out of force", or the vehicle is no longer covered by insurance.
2. An Add (A transaction) is sent when the coverage is reinstated.

Seasonal Vehicles:

Liability insurance suspended for seasonal vehicles is submitted as a cancellation (C transaction).

FILE TRANSMISSION INFORMATION

GENERAL:

Insurance Verification and Notification Network will use the Information Exchange ("IE") Mailbox as a method of submitting electronic data for the monthly reporting. Information Exchange is a communication service of the IBM Global Network. With IE, you can send and receive virtually any information in electronic form, from free-format messages and data files to highly formatted EDI transactions. Information Exchange, in conjunction with software called Expedite, uses protocol converters, interface programs and translation programs that allow you to send information to and receive information from a mailbox on the IBM Global Network.

CONNECTIVITY AND ORDERING REQUIREMENTS:

ADVANTIS is the system involved in the Information Exchange. If you do not have the ADVANTIS services they may be obtained directly by calling 1-800-655 -8865. When contacting ADVANTIS, identify yourself as needing to get set up to do EDI with the state of Arkansas (EDI Project #699). A rninimum of two weeks will need to be allowed for the initial connectivity window with ADVANTIS.

The sponsor ADVANTIS Account / User ID to be used is:

TEST:

ARDR/ARDRS02

PRODUCTION:

ARDR/ARDRS01

Insurance carriers may also use a re-marketer service, provided the hookup is through the ADVANTIS system. If your business already has an account and connectivity established through IVANS (or even through ADVANTIS directly) and using Information Exchange for other projects, you should be ready to start any time. If you have an account and connectivity, but not Information Exchange, you must go to your service provider (i.e., IVANS) to request ordering and cost requirements.

EMERGENCY REGULATION 1998-3

This regulation is necessary in order to enforce Section 4 of Act 991 of 1997.

A. RJEPORTING REQUIREMENTS -

Any insurance company that provides motor vehicle liability insurance coverage required under Ark. Code Ann. & 27-22-104(a) must report their motor vehicle insurance policies to the Revenue Division, Department of Finance and Administration. Any insurance company required to report must provide to the Revenue Division a record of each motor vehicle insurance policy issued or canceled by their company as of the previous month.

1. All reports shall be provided to the Revenue Division through any means of electronic or electro-magnetic medium available to and approved by the Department. Any insurance company determined by the Revenue Division to be a small or low volume insurance company shall be excluded from the electronic reporting requirement, but shall report in another method approved by the Department.
2. All reports shall include:
a. The name and address of the insured operator;
b. The make, year, and vehicle identification number of each insured vehicle; and c The policy number, effective date, or cancellation date of each policy.
3. All reports must have an accuracy rate of at least seventy six percent (76%).
a. Upon receipt of a report from an insurance company having a twenty five percent (25%). or more error rate, the Revenue Division shall notify the insurance company in writing of the reporting problem.
b. If the Department receives reports from a company for two consecutive reporting periods having a twenty five percent (25%) or more error rate, a penalty may be assessed by the Department.
B. PENALTY ASSESSMENTS
1. A penalty may be assessed of up to two hundred and fifty dollars (S250.00) per day against any insurance company that fails to report the information described in A. before the seventh day of each calendar month. The assessment may continue until the Department receives a report from the company. An insurance company just starting business in Arkansas shall be allowed one complete reporting period before penalties areimposed-
2. A penalty may be assessed of up to two hundred and fifty dollars (S250.00) per day against any insurance company sending reports with error rates of twenty five percent (25%) or more for two (2) consecutive reporting periods. The assessment may continue until the Department receives a report from the company with a seventy six percent (76%) or greater accuracy rate.
C. RIGHT TO HEARING -

Any insurance company assessed a penalty under this regulation may request an administrative hearing before the Board of Hearings and Appeals of the Department of Finance and Administration. Any requests for administrative hearings should be made in writing to the Director of the Department of Finance and Administration within 30 days of receipt of the assessment. The provisions of the Administrative Procedures Act (Ark. Code Ann. § 25-15-101 ) shall apply to such hearings. If the insurance company establishes that the failure to comply with this regulation was inadvertent, accidental, outside of the control of the company or the result of excusable neglect, the penalty may be waived. '

STATEMENT OF IMMINENT PERIL

Act 991 of 1997 amended various provisions of the Arkansas Code concerning the requirement that motor vehicle owners provide proof of liability insurance coverage before registering a vehicle. Section 5 of Act 991 of 1997, codified at Ark. Code Ann. § 27-14-414, requires the Revenue Division of the Department of Finance and Administration to create and administer the Vehicle Insurance Database in order to verify compliance with the motor vehicle liability insurance laws of Arkansas.

Beginning January 1, 1998, Section 4 of Act 991 of 1997, codified at Ark. Code Aim. § 27-24-107, requires that each insurance company providing motor vehicle liability insurance coverage required under subsection (a) of § 27-22-104 before the seventh day of each calendar month provide to the Revenue Division, Department of Finance and Administration, a record of each motor vehicle insurance policy in effect as of the previous month that was issued by the insurance company. Section 4 & copy;of Act 991 of 1997, codified at Ark. Code Ann. § 27-22-107 & copy; authorizes the Department of Finance and Administration to assess a penalty against each insurance company of up to two hundred and fifty dollars (S250.00) for each day the insurance company fails to comply with the reporting requirement Section 4(d) of Act 991 of 1997, codified at Ark. Code Ann. 27-22-107(d), requires the Department of Finance and Administration to promulgate necessary rules and regulations for the administration of this section. Emergency Regulation 1998-3 provides the rules and procedures the Department of Finance and Administration needed for the assessment of penalties against insurance companies that do not provide the necessary information.

In order for the Department of Finance and Administration to begin enforcing Section 4 of Act 991 of 1997, it is necessary that Emergency Regulation 1998-3 be effective immediately.
