a. The Commissioner of Insurance shall, on or before October 1, 1990, compile a list of insurance brokers licensed pursuant to the "New Jersey Insurance Producer Licensing Act," P.L.1987, c.293 (C.17:22A-1 et seq.), who are producers for the New Jersey Automobile Full Insurance Underwriting Association pursuant to section 22 of P.L.1983, c.65 (C.17:30E-10). The list shall include the name of the broker and any applicable fictitious, trade or firm name used by the broker; the business address of the broker; and shall set forth the authorities which the broker holds pursuant to section 10 of P.L.1987, c.293 (C.17:22A-10). The list shall be made available to all insurers licensed to transact automobile insurance in this State.
b. The commissioner shall initiate a plan to encourage the broadening of authorities held by those brokers who have been active as association producers.
c. The commissioner shall, on or before October 1, 1991, establish a producer assignment program. The program shall be available upon application to any licensed insurance producer who: (1) is a producer for the association; (2) has no affiliation with a voluntary market company for the purposes of placement of private passenger automobile insurance; (3) had an affiliation with an insurance company for the placement of automobile insurance in the voluntary market which was terminated by the insurer on or after December 31, 1980; (4) has demonstrated to the commissioner his competency, efficiency and effectiveness in servicing association and other insurance business as determined by a review of the record of the producer for complaints, violations of the licensing law and other factors deemed relevant by the commissioner; and (5) is located and services insurance in a geographic area which the commissioner has determined to lack sufficient representation for the placement of automobile insurance business in the voluntary market. The program shall provide for the assignment of qualified producers on an equitable basis to insurers writing private passenger automobile insurance in the voluntary market.
