72B.06 Catastrophe or emergency situations.

Any person acting as an independent adjuster in this state in a catastrophe or emergency situation who is not a licensed adjuster, must register with the commissioner within 72 hours of commencing any adjusting assignments. The registration shall be made on such form as the commissioner shall prescribe and shall include the name of the registrant, permanent home address and address for the period during which the registration is effective, the categories of losses being adjusted by the registrant, the name of the licensed independent adjuster or staff adjuster who will be supervising that adjuster, and the name of the insurer or insurers in whose behalf the adjusting is being done. No person shall register or be allowed to adjust losses under this provision unless that person is under the supervision of a staff adjuster or a licensed independent adjuster. The supervising adjuster shall indicate on the registration filing the period of time for which the registration is being made, and no unlicensed person shall undertake to adjust losses after the termination of the registration.

Each registrant under this section shall promptly give written notice to the commissioner of any change in address while in this state, or any other information stated in the registration statement.

The commissioner may summarily suspend or revoke the right of any person adjusting in this state under the authority of this section to continue to adjust in this state, if the commissioner finds that that person has engaged in any of the practices forbidden to a licensed adjuster under sections 72B.01 to 72B.14. Notice of such suspension or revocation may be given personally or by mail sent to the temporary address stated in the registration. A duplicate copy of such notice shall be given to the supervising adjuster.
