Our History

Effective July 1, 1997, the Miss. Code Ann. 83-21-21(3), was amended to provide that the Commissioner of Insurance may rely upon the advice and assistance of a duly constituted association of surplus lines agents in carrying out the purposes of the laws on foreign insurance companies contained in Title 83, Chapter 21 of the Miss. Code Ann. (1972).

Established on September 18, 1997, the Mississippi Surplus Lines Association (MSLA) was launched as a private non-profit association to serve this role and has been recognized by the Commissioner of Insurance as the association upon which he will rely for advice and assistance pursuant to the above statutes.
