K.A.R. 40-3-57.  Controlled insurance programs including general liability. Each controlled insurance program including general liability coverage for the participants shall require the following:

            (a) Coverage for completed operations liability shall not, after substantial completion of a construction project, be canceled, lapse, or expire before the limitation on actions has expired as established by K.S.A. 60-513(b), and amendments thereto, but in no case more than 10 years. If another carrier takes responsibility for completed operations liability coverage, any and all prior completed operation liability carriers shall be released from completed operations liability unless specified otherwise in subsequent policies.

            (b) General liability coverage shall not be required of project participants except for liabilities not arising on the site or sites of the construction project, and any coverage maintained by the participants shall cover liabilities not arising on the site or sites of the construction project.

            (c) The general liability coverage provided to participants shall provide for severability of interest, except with respect to limits of liability, so that participants shall be treated as if separately covered under the policy.

            (d) Participants shall be given the same shared limits of liability coverage as those that apply to the sponsoring participant under the controlled insurance program.

            (e) Participants shall not be required to waive rights of recovery for claims covered by the controlled insurance program against another participant in the controlled insurance program covered by general liability insurance provided by the controlled insurance program. (Authorized by K.S.A. 40-103 and 2009 HB 2214, sec. 3; implementing 2009 HB 2214, sec. 3; effective October 30, 2009.)
