Instructions for shipping of released collateral must be provided in writing, signed by an authorized person. 
d. Voluntary - Collateral deposited by a domestic insurer to be held for other states pursuant to Subsection 625.51(2), Florida Statutes.

If the deposit is held under a statute, contract, or agreement where the sole signatories on the account are public regulating governmental entity designees, the regulating governmental entity must file the authorized signature certification.
