What is NIPR?

The NIPR is a unique public-private partnership that supports the work of the states and the NAIC (National Association of Insurance Commissioners) in making the producer-licensing process more cost-effective, streamlined and uniform for the benefit of regulators, the insurance industry and the consumers they protect and serve.  

NIPR developed and implemented the national repository for producer license information (PDB) and established a network to facilitate the electronic exchange of producer information (NIPR Gateway). 

The following information is maintained in the producer database (PDB) and is updated daily by participating state insurance departments:  

1. General demographic information relating to all producers, such as name and addresses(es)  

2. License information, such as state of license, license numbers, authorized lines, and license status

3. Appointment information such as company appointments, effective date, termination date, and termination reason

4. Regulatory actions (if taken)


The NIPR Gateway is an electronic communication network that links state insurance regulators with the entities they regulate. The goal is to simplify communications and to distribute information electronically, including licensing applications, appointments, and terminations.
