Nevada Insurance
Sec. § 684A.060
Exceptions to requirement of licensing: Agents; catastrophes; temporary emergency license.


On behalf of, as authorized by, an insurer as to which he or she is licensed as an agent under chapter 683A of NRS, an agent may from time to time act as an adjuster without a license as an adjuster; but no such agent shall act as an adjuster for an insurer with which the agent has a contract providing for compensation retrospectively contingent upon losses incurred under insurance sold or serviced by the agent.


No license shall be required of a nonresident salaried adjuster for the adjustment in this state of one or more losses arising out of a catastrophe common to all such losses where such losses are designated to be a catastrophe by responsible insurance associations or the Commissioner.


In the event of a catastrophe, an insurer shall notify the Commissioner by an application for the issuance of a temporary emergency license for each individual who is not already licensed in this State and who will act as an emergency adjuster on behalf of the insurer. The Commissioner, by regulation, shall establish standards and procedures to allow for the temporary emergency licensure of an emergency adjuster in this State.


An individual who is not already licensed in this State but who is otherwise qualified to adjust claims may act as an emergency adjuster and adjust claims if, within 5 days after deploying the individual to adjust claims arising from the catastrophe, the insurer notifies the Commissioner by providing the following information in a format prescribed by the Commissioner:


The name of the individual;


The social security number of the individual;


The name of the insurer the individual will represent;


The effective date of the contract between the insurer and the individual;


The catastrophe or loss control number;


The name of the catastrophe; and


Any other information the Commissioner deems necessary.


The temporary emergency license of an individual as an emergency adjuster is valid for not more than 90 days unless extended by the Commissioner.


For the protection of the people of this State, the Commissioner may not issue a temporary emergency license except in compliance with the provisions of this chapter. Any individual for whom a temporary emergency license is issued must:


Be at least 18 years of age;


Be competent, trustworthy, financially responsible and of good reputation, as determined by the Commissioner; and


Never have been convicted of, or entered a plea of guilty, guilty but mentally ill or nolo contendere to, forgery, embezzlement, obtaining money under false pretenses, larceny, extortion or conspiracy to defraud and never have committed any act that is a ground for refusal to issue, suspension or revocation of a license pursuant to NRS 683A.451.


An application for a temporary emergency license must be accompanied by the license fee specified for an adjuster in NRS 680B.010 and, in addition to any other fee or charge, all fees required for an adjuster pursuant to NRS 680C.110.
