Terrorism Risk Insurance Program; Technical Amendments to “Make Available” Provision and “Insurer Deductible” Definition
The Department of the Treasury (Treasury) is issuing this final rule as part of its implementation of Title I of the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002 (Act). The Act established a temporary Terrorism Insurance Program (Program) under which the Federal Government will share the risk of insured loss from certified acts of terrorism with commercial property and casualty insurers until the Program ends on December 31, 2005. This final rule makes minor technical changes to Subpart A of Part 50 of Title 31. One change conforms existing regulations to the June 18, 2004 determination by the Secretary of the Treasury to extend the ``make available'' provisions of section 103(c) of the Act through the third year of the Program (calendar year 2005). A second change clarifies the definition of the insurer deductible for Program Year 3 for certain newly formed insurers to more closely parallel the language of the Act.
