FSLSO is a self-regulating, nonprofit association for all Florida surplus lines agents. Governed by a nine-member Board of Governors, it has the primary oversight responsibilities for one of the largest surplus lines markets in the U.S. as measured by more than $4 billion of premium written by the industry in Florida in 2016.
In our quest to facilitate compliance, FSLSO's responsibilities include monitoring activities and compliance of the licensed surplus lines agents conducting business in the State of Florida as well as the eligible surplus lines insurers. It also processes submissions from independently procured coverage filers (IPC), a service previously processed by the Department of Financial Services (DFS).
Known as a leader in innovative solutions, FSLSO is visionary among stamping offices in the U.S. It pioneered the use of technology to eliminate costs with printing, mailing, storing and inputting thousands of policies within the state. Its proprietary filing system is known as the Surplus Lines Automation Suite (SLAS) and is now used in several states across the nation.
