Insurance Company Licensing - Certificate of Authority
Insurance companies applying for a Certificate of Authority, pursuant to Chapter 431, Article 3 of the Hawaii Revised Statutes, must use the NAIC’s Uniform Certificate of Authority Application ("UCAA").
The UCAA is available at the NAIC’s website: http://www.naic.org/industry_ucaa.htm
The UCAA consists of the Primary Application and the Expansion Application. The Primary Application should be used by newly formed Hawaii insurance companies seeking a Hawaii Certificate of Authority and for insurers, not currently admitted in Hawaii, wishing to redomesticate to Hawaii. The Expansion Application should be used by all other insurance companies already licensed in another state and seeking a Hawaii Certificate of Authority. If you should have any questions, please contact Sally Bautista, of our Certification Section, at (808) 586-7414 or send an email to Sally.D.Bautista@dcca.hawaii.gov.
