A. Notwithstanding the control of an authorized insurer by any person, neither the officers and directors of the insurer nor any similarly situated person to whom authority has been delegated, shall thereby be relieved of any obligation or liability to which they would otherwise be subject by law, and the insurer shall be managed so as to assure its separate operating identity consistent with the Act and Title 38.2 of the Code of Virginia.

1. The terms shall be fair and reasonable;

2. Charges or fees for services performed shall be reasonable;

3. Expenses incurred and payments received shall be allocated to the insurer in conformity with customary insurance accounting practices consistently applied;

4. The books, accounts, and records of each party shall disclose clearly and accurately the precise nature and details of the transactions as agreed upon in writing by the parties; and
