The Oklahoma regulations allow the commissioner to make exceptions to the form filing requirements if the forms are not, in the commissioner’s opinion, desirable or necessary for the protection of commercial insureds or the general public. By allowing certain policies to be exempt from filing requirements, competition and increased speed to market may be gained. In light of this, effective October 26, 2022 the commissioner is exempting the following policy types as long as on a per-policy basis they produce an annual premium of $10,000 or more. These lines are exempt from filing and approval requirements for forms, endorsements, or other contract language or modification.
