In order to better serve the consumer and to simplify reporting of surplus lines,
the 1995 legislature passed legislation enabling the formation of a surplus lines association.
The Insurance Commissioner appointed a board of directors to establish an office and to hire an
executive director. The purpose of this association is to assist the Commissioner in regulating
surplus lines and encourage its members to comply with all of the provisions of NRS Chapter 685A.
The mission of the NSLA is to assist the Nevada Division of Insurance in the
Regulation of surplus lines insurance and to encourage compliance by surplus
lines agents and insurers with the surplus lines law and the rules of the Nevada
Division of Insurance.
