RE: Nonrenewal Notice Provision, Chapter 175, §193P

This Bulletin is to confirm that insurers are no longer required to provide a copy of the Notice of Cancellation or Nonrenewal to the Division of Insurance. The Acts of 1996, Chapter 93, §5, an emergency act approved on May 20, 1996, deleted the second sentence of Chapter 175, §193P: "A copy of any such notice shall be forwarded to the commissioner."

Carriers are reminded to stop sending a copy of such cancellation or nonrenewal notices to the Division of Insurance.
