Smoker and nonsmoker mortality tables to determine the valuation net premiums and additional minimum reserves, if any, required by § 38.2-1376 of the Code of Virginia and use composite mortality tables to determine the basic minimum reserves, minimum cash surrender values, and amounts of paid-up nonforfeiture benefits; or
