In the NAIC National Meeting 2019 case, Bermuda, Japan and Switzerland have been recognised as mutual jurisdictions – meaning that reinsurers established in these jurisdictions will effectively be equated with reinsurers headquartered in the EU/Great Britain, once the states have adopted the revised law and the credit model regulation and the credit regulation for reinsurance benefits. In addition, the revised legislation and the nAIC reinsurance model regulation were adopted effective September 1, 2022, and implementation is expected to begin on January 1, 2023.

Treasury Secretary and the then U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) informed Congress that they had negotiated a covered agreement with the European Union (EU). After a period of uncertainty during which it was not certain that the new Trump administration would accept the covered agreement negotiated by the outgoing Obama administration, the U.S. Treasury (Treasury) and USTR announced on July 14, 2017 their intention to sign the covered agreement that took place on September 22, 2017. Following the signing of the covered agreement, the U.S. Treasury and USTR also issued a joint political statement on its implementation, specifying the U.S. position on the interpretation of certain provisions of the agreement. Problem: A covered agreement provides the U.S. Treasury and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) with stand-by authority to address, where appropriate, areas where U.S.
insurance law or legislation is dealt with by non-U.S. insurance laws or regulations. insurers other than U.S. insurers, such as. B the security requirements of reinsurance and consumer protection. A covered agreement can only be used as a basis for anticipating state law if the agreement deals with measures essentially equivalent to consumers protected under national law.
