(iv) The Workmen's Compensation
Commission shall develop rules and regulations prescribing
requirements and procedures for groups of counties or
municipalities seeking to establish joint self-insurance

(v) A group of counties or
municipalities may not be self-insured without first
receiving a certificate of authority to do business issued
by the Workmen's Compensation Commission.

(vi) For the purposes of workmen's
compensation, self-insurers and groups of counties or
municipalities which are self-insured pursuant to this
paragraph are not subject to the provisions of Article 48A
of the Code.

(c) Any such employer who may wish to
adopt any one of the methods mentioned in the preceding
paragraphs for assuring the payment of compensation to his
employees and their dependents, shall first submit to the
Workmen's Compensation Commission the method he wishes to
adopt. The said Commission may approve or reject the method
proposed. If rejected, the employer may submit another
method authorized under this article. The said Commission
may from time to time revise or alter its decision approving
the election of an employer to adopt any of the methods of
assuring payment of the compensation as provided for in this
article, if such action is reasonably necessary to secure
and safeguard such payments to employees or for the
diminishing and prevention of accidents. Any action of the
Commission for the purpose of diminishing or preventing
accidents shall not apply to public service corporations
under the jurisdiction of the Public Service Commission.
Any decision of said Commission under this section or § 15
of this article may be reviewed in the circuit court for the
county in which the employer may reside [or in any of the
common law courts of Baltimore City, if the employer resides
in Baltimore City].


(a) Any employer, employee, beneficiary or person
feeling aggrieved by any decision of the Commission
affecting his interests under this article, may have the
same reviewed by a proceeding in the nature of an appeal and
initiated in the circuit court of the county [or in the
common-law courts of Baltimore City] having jurisdiction
over the place where the accident occurred or over the
person appealing from such decision, and the court shall
determine whether the Commission has justly considered all
the facts concerning the injury, whether it has exceeded the
powers granted it by the article, and whether it has
misconstrued the law and facts applicable in the case
