3.The suspension or revocation of an accreditation or certification may not take effect until after the Commissioner’s order on hearing unless:
(a)The reinsurer waives its right to a hearing;
(b)The Commissioner’s order is based upon regulatory action taken by the reinsurer’s domiciliary jurisdiction or the voluntary surrender or termination of the reinsurer’s eligibility to transact insurance or reinsurance business in its domiciliary jurisdiction or in the primary certifying state of the reinsurer; or
(c)The Commissioner finds that an emergency requires immediate action and a court of competent jurisdiction has not stayed the Commissioner’s action.

If the reinsurer’s accreditation or certification is revoked, no credit for reinsurance may be granted after the effective date of the revocation except to the extent that the reinsurer’s obligations under the contract are secured pursuant to NRS 681A.240.
