If the group self insurer does not execute an Agreement of Assumption and Guarantee of Liabilities of Workers' Compensation Liabilities For Group Members for any proposed group member, the Director shall deny the application to self insure of the proposed group member, or, if an Interim Certificate of Consent to Self Insure has been issued to a group member and the group self insurer declines to execute an Agreement of Assumption and Guarantee of Liabilities of Workers' Compensation Liabilities For Group Members for that group member, it shall be cause for revocation of the Affiliate Certificate of Consent to Self Insure of the group member.

If a group member is acquired by another entity while the group member is self insured and that new holding company, ultimate parent company, controlling general partnership, or owner having controlling ownership declines to execute an Agreement of Assumption and Guarantee of Liabilities, it shall be deemed cause for revocation of the group member's Affiliate Certificate of Consent to Self Insure.
