Certificates of Insurance are used to provide evidence of policy information and are commonly used for business purposes. Insurance agents are often asked to fill out certificate of insurance forms that have not been approved by the Texas Department of Insurance or are not industry standard forms. In some cases these certificates require the agent to certify coverages and make interpretations of coverage that are vague or impossible to interpret with certainty. Making false or deceptive statements on certificates can be deemed to be a violation of Sec. 541.051 and Sec. 541.061 of the Texas Insurance Code.
