40-4912.Same; appointment of agents. (a) Any company authorized to transact business in this state may, upon determining that the insurance agent is of good business reputation and, if an individual, has had experience in insurance or will immediately receive a course of instruction in insurance and on the policies and policy forms of such company, appoint such insurance agent as the insurance agent of the company under the license in effect for the insurance agent. The appointment shall be made on a form prescribed by the commissioner. Such form shall be sent to the commissioner within 30 days of the date the company appoints such insurance agent. A nonrefundable appointment or certification fee set forth in K.S.A. 40-252, and amendments thereto, shall be paid in accordance with the billing procedures established by the commissioner. Such procedures shall require payment of the fees annually, based on the number of insurance agents appointed during the calendar year preceding the return. The certification fees required by K.S.A. 40-252, and amendments thereto, shall be due for all insurance agents appointed by the company during the preceding calendar year, irrespective of the number of months the insurance agent was appointed for that year. The certification fee shall not be returned for any reason, and failure of the company to certify an insurance agent within 30 working days of such insurance agent's appointment shall subject the company to a penalty of not more than $25 per calendar day from the date the appropriate return was required from the date of appointment to the date proper certification is recorded by the insurance department.

(b) Certification of other than an individual insurance agent will automatically include each licensed insurance agent who is an officer, director, partner, employee or otherwise legally associated with the corporation, association, partnership or other legal entity appointed by the company. The required annual certification fee shall be paid for each licensed insurance agent certified by the company and the prescribed reporting form shall be returned at the same time the company files its tax returns as required by K.S.A. 40-252, and amendments thereto.

(c) With respect to insurance on growing crops, evidence satisfactory to the commissioner that the insurance agent is qualified to transact insurance in accordance with standards or procedures established by any branch of the federal government shall be deemed to be the equivalent of certification by a company.

(d) Duly licensed insurance agents transacting business in accordance with the provisions of article 41 of chapter 40 of the Kansas Statutes Annotated, and amendments thereto, shall be deemed to be certified by a company for the kinds of insurance permitted under the license in effect for the insurance agent.
