If an unauthorized insurer elects to designate a person to receive legal process from the commissioner, the designation must be in writing and filed with the commissioner in substantially the form set forth on the commissioner's web site at: www.insurance.wa.gov.
(2) The person designated by the insurer to receive legal process may be an individual, firm or corporation.
(3) The process documents will be forwarded by the commissioner to the person designated in the most recent notice filed with the commissioner.
