A. When executing the forms required by this part, each certificate applicant shall designate on the face of the application, a person located in Virginia as its agent for service of process for purposes of this part and for receipt of notices of designations and presentations of claims under this regulation. Each designated agent shall acknowledge his designation by providing the department with a letter showing that he has agreed to act as the registered agent for service of process for the certificate applicant or certificant in question.

B. If any certificate applicant or certificant desires, for any reason, to change any designated agent, the certificate applicant or certificant shall notify the department of the change and furnish the relevant information, including the new agent's acknowledgment in accordance with subsection A of this section. In the event of death, disability, or unavailability of a designated agent, the certificate applicant or certificant shall designate another agent in accordance with paragraph A of this section within 10 days of knowledge of any such event. The certificate applicant or certificant shall submit the new designation to the department. The director may revoke a certificate if a certificate applicant or certificant fails to designate and maintain an agent for service of process.

C. If a designated agent can not be served because of death, disability, unavailability, or similar event and another agent has not been designated under this section, then service of process on the director will constitute valid service of process. Service of process on the director will not be effective unless the server

2. Attests to this registered mailing, at the time process is served upon the director, indicating that the intent of the mailing is to effect service of process on the certificate applicant or certificant and that service on the designated agent is not possible, stating the reason why.
