Article (76) Approval of Insurance Policy Forms and Appendices

(a) No insurance company subject to the provisions of this law shall issue forms of insurance policies or any appendices thereto without the approval of the Central Bank. In order to obtain such approval, applications shall be submitted to the Central Bank accompanied by a copy of the policy or the appendix that it intends to issue.
(b) The Central Bank shall review the contents of insurances policies and any appendices thereto and shall notify the insurance company, within sixty days from the date of application, of its approval or objection to any contents that may contradict the law or the public order. If the applicant company received no notification during this period, an implicit approval to the contents of the insurance policy or its appendices shall be assumed.
(c) Insurance policies, appendices and endorsements shall be made in Arabic language and may be accompanied by an English translation. However, in the event of any contradiction between the two texts, the Arabic text shall prevail.

The Central Bank may exclude certain types of policies from being made in the Arabic language.
