Article 940. The form of the insurance contract.
1. The insurance contract must be concluded in writing. Failure to comply with the written form shall entail the invalidity of the insurance contract, with the exception of the contract of compulsory state insurance (Article 969). 2. An insurance contract may be concluded by drawing up a single document (clause 2 of Article 434) or by handing the insurer to the insurer on the basis of his written or oral statement of the insurance policy (certificate, certificate, receipt) signed by the insurer. In the latter case, the consent of the insurer to conclude an agreement on the conditions proposed by the insurer is confirmed by the acceptance of the documents specified in the first paragraph of this clause from the insurer. 3. When concluding an insurance contract, the insurer has the right to apply the standard contract forms (insurance policy) developed by him or by an insurer for certain types of insurance.
