State Based Systems (SBS) The Maryland Insurance Administration's Producer Licensing section has converted to the NAIC's State Based system (SBS), a web-based licensing system. The new system offers faster issuance of licenses and renewals and provides real-time access to producer information, thereby eliminating delays. Click the link above to:
National Insurance Producer Registry (NIPR) As a result of the SBS implementation, ALL licensing transactions can be completed electronically via the National Insurance Producer Registry. Motor Clubs also may process initial registration applications and appointments, as well as renew registrants' rosters via one of the NIPR's authorized business partners. Click the link above to:

With the exception of the designated insurance producer(s) of an agency and associates of a title insurance agency, a licensed insurance producer agency is no longer required to report the insurance producers associated with it to the Maryland Insurance Administration (MIA). The agency will be responsible for keeping a list of producers associated with the agency in a manner that allows the information to be retrieved in a reasonable period of time upon request from the MIA. (NOTE: This does not apply to title insurance producers and agencies.)
Maryland no longer requires insurers to report appointments or terminations, except for terminations for cause. Instead, the insurer is required to keep a Producer Register of its appointed agents beginning with those appointed on and after January 1, 2004, in accordance with Maryland regulation (COMAR 31.03.13). Every 31 days, insurers are required to check on whether any disciplinary action has been taken against their agents via the MIA website. Appointment information is no longer available in the MIA's licensing database.
