Former Citations Ins. Law s 69-d
(a) Every controlled insurer shall file with the superintendent such reports or material as he may direct for the purpose of disclosing information concerning the operations of persons within the holding company system which may materially affect the operations, management or financial condition of the insurer.
(b) Every holding company and every controlled person within a holding company system shall be subject to examination by order of the superintendent if he has cause to believe that the operations of such persons may materially affect the operations, management or financial condition of any controlled insurer within the system and that he is unable to obtain relevant information from such controlled insurer. The grounds relied upon by the superintendent for such examination shall be stated in his order. Such examination shall be confined to matters specified in the order. The cost of such examination shall be assessed against the person examined and no portion thereof shall thereafter be reimbursed to it directly or indirectly by the controlled insurer.
(c) The superintendent shall keep the contents of each report made pursuant to this article and any information obtained in connection therewith confidential and shall not make the same public without the prior written consent of the controlled insurer to which it pertains unless the superintendent after notice and an opportunity to be heard shall determine that the interests of policyholders, shareholders or the public will be served by the publication thereof. In any action or proceeding by the superintendent against the person examined or any other person within the same holding company system a report of such examination published by him shall be admissible as evidence of the facts stated therein.
