Reinsurance: surplus reinsurance contracts under which the agreement between an insurer and a re insurer is based on the ceding company's line guide, such that the amount re insured is expressed in terms of the multiples of the retention and is referred to as a number of lines. Regular market: insurance coverage not available from an ADMITTED COMPANY in the regular market; thus a surplus lines broker agent representing an applicant seeks coverage in the surplus lines market from a NON ADMITTED INSURER according to the insurance regulations of a particular state.
