(b) All other standards in paragraph I shall apply to forms that are filed for information and audit purposes under this paragraph.
(c) Subparagraph (a) shall not apply to the insurance listed under subparagraphs (a)(1)- (11) when:
(1) The commissioner has determined that a reasonable degree of competition does not exist for that type of insurance, and a ruling has been issued to that effect in accordance with RSA 412:13; or
(2) The policy form for that type of insurance is issued by a risk sharing plan established under RSA 404-C.
412-A:1 Policies to be Filed With Commissioner. Every insurance company which issues insurance on hulls of aircraft, including their accessories and equipment, and liability resulting from the ownership, use or maintenance of aircraft shall file with the insurance commissioner for informational and auditing purposes a copy of the form of the policy containing the insurance contract covering such losses and all printed endorsements that may be attached thereto. [An insurance company authorized to insure against such losses shall not issue a policy covering such losses until 30 days after it has filed the form of the policy, unless the commissioner sooner gives written approval of the policy.] As part of the audit process, the commissioner may disapprove any form if it contains a provision that does not comply with the requirements of law, is not in the public interest, is contrary to public policy, is inequitable, misleading, deceptive, or encourages misrepresentation of such policy.
