      Section: 17:36-5.15: Required statements in policy; copy to be filed with commissioner

           No policy or contract of fire insurance on any property in this State, except fire insurance on risks subject to the "Commercial Insurance Deregulation Act of 1982," P.L. 1982, c. 114 (C. 17:29AA-1 et seq.); shall be made, issued or delivered by any insurer or by any agent or representative thereof until a copy of the form thereof has been filed with the Commissioner of Insurance. If the commissioner shall at any time notify any insurer of his disapproval of any such policy form because it contains provisions which are unjust, unfair, inequitable, misleading or contrary to law, it shall be unlawful for such insurer thereafter to issue any policy in the form so disapproved. Such disapproval by the commissioner may be reviewed by a proceeding in lieu of prerogative writ.

There shall be printed at the head of such policy the name of the insurer or insurers issuing the policy; the location of the home office thereof; a statement whether said insurer or insurers operate on a stock or mutual plan or are reciprocal insurers or Lloyd's underwriters; provided, however, that a corporation organized under a special act of the Legislature of any state may so indicate upon its policy and may add a statement of the plan under which it operates in this State; and there may be added thereto such device or devices as the insurer or insurers shall desire.

If the policy is issued by a mutual insurer having special regulations with respect to the payment by the policyholder of assessments, such regulations shall be printed upon the policy, and any such insurer may print upon the policy such regulations as may be appropriate to or required by its form of organization.
