Additionally, you should not initiate nor participate in any of the following discussions involving, but not limited to: pricing, profits, commissions, or any other cost components and elements; rates or the stabilizing of rates or other terms or conditions of any products offered for sale; underwriting criteria with an eye towards standardizing/standardization; matters that would adversely affect the availability of insurance or services to the public.
Also, this includes any discussion of the types of products that may be offered and sold or the states and territories in which they may be sold; future rate plans including actuarial projections; “Fair” profit levels; developing “standards” for company operations; suggesting a certain credit policy.
