Cool Careful Company Compliance

Another example is Regulation XXX (Valuation of Life Insurance Policies) - some states have not adopted the 2009 version of the model reg, while others have not adopted it at all.
Some states take the position that a model applies even though it hasn't been officially adopted. It's wise to be careful not to assume that a model reg isn't applicable (e.g., the UL Model), if only because it might be the best interpretation of the underlying statute. Companies have to exercise caution when compliance is encouraged by a regulator.
