If you write business in Alaska, you have probably received a notice from the Alaska DOI regarding a hearing regarding the AK export list.  Details can be found at

The hearing is Thursday October 3rd and the deadline for written comments is Tuesday, October at 4:30 ADT

As you may be aware there have been significant issues recently on exporting Maritime Employers liability (MEL)  coverage, particularly to London, and yet there are almost no licensed markets writing this coverage in Alaska for most operations.

As such I would urge you to send your request to have Maritime Employers Liability added to the export list for Alaska urgently to before the deadline!
