AS 21.66.450. Forms of Policies and Other Contracts of Title Insurance.

(a) Each title insurance company shall file with the director all forms of title policies and other contracts of title insurance that it proposes to issue in this state before their issuance; however, in no event may a title insurance company issue a form of policy or contract before 30 days after it has been filed with the director, unless it has received earlier approval by the director. Unless the director disapproves a form of title policy or contract of title insurance within 30 days from the date of its filing, the filing is considered to be approved.

(b) Forms of title policies and other contracts of insurance, as used in this section, are considered to include preliminary reports of title, binders for insurance, commitments to insure, and policies of insurance or guaranty, together with all the terms and conditions of insurance coverage or guaranty that relate to title to any interest in property, offered by a title insurance company. Forms of title policies and other contracts of insurance shall specifically exclude

(1) reinsurance contracts or agreements;

(2) all specific defects in title that may be ascertained from an examination of the risk and excepted in such reports, binder, commitments, or policies, together with any affirmative assurances of the title insurance company with respect to the defects whether given by endorsement or otherwise; and

(3) further exceptions from coverage by reason of limitations upon the examination of the risk imposed by an applicant for insurance or through failure of an applicant for insurance to provide the data requisite to a judgment of insurability.
