(a)  Each insurance company desiring a status of accredited reinsurer in this jurisdiction must file an Application for Accredited Reinsurer in the form as prescribed by the Commissioner, or Form AR‑1, Certificate of Assuming Insurer, as adopted by the NAIC, and must satisfy the requirements of G.S. 58‑7‑21(b)(2).
