In accordance with s. 624.4212 regarding confidential information sharing, the office may enter into agreements that provide the basis for cooperation between the office and the other regulatory agencies and the activities of the supervisory college. This section does not delegate to the supervisory college the office’s authority to regulate or supervise the insurer or its affiliates under its jurisdiction.

(a) Initiate the establishment of a supervisory college.
(b) Clarify the membership and participation of other supervisors in the supervisory college.

(2) With respect to an insurer registered under s. 628.801, and in accordance with this section, the office may participate in a supervisory college for any domestic insurer that is part of an insurance holding company system that has international operations in order to determine the insurer’s compliance with this chapter.
(3) Each registered insurer subject to this section is liable for and shall pay reasonable expenses for the office’s participation in a supervisory college, including reasonable travel expenses. A supervisory college may be convened as a temporary or permanent forum for communication and cooperation between the regulators charged with the supervision of the insurer or its affiliates, and the office may impose a regular assessment on the insurer for the payment of these expenses.
