The annual statement shall be prepared in accordance with the annual statement instructions and the Accounting Practices and Procedures Manual adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, and all applicable provisions of law. Additionally, every insurance company shall file quarterly statements in the format adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners covering the periods ending on March 31, June 30, and September 30, which shall be filed within 45 days after each such date. Quarterly statements shall be confidential and shall not be subject to public inspection or copying pursuant to P.L.1963, c.73 (C.47:1A-1 et seq.). All statements shall be submitted in the form and contain any additional matter the commissioner prescribes. The commissioner may also address any inquiries to the company of its officers in relation to its condition of affairs, or any matter connected with its transactions, and the officers of the company shall promptly reply in writing to all the inquiries. The commissioner may, for good cause, extend the time within which the statement or any part thereof may be filed. The annual and quarterly statements of a company of a foreign country shall embrace only its business and condition in the United States, and shall be subscribed and sworn to by its resident manager or principal representative in charge of its American business.

If an insurance company domiciled in this State makes a request in writing no more than 60 days prior to December 1, the commissioner shall, annually, in the month of December furnish to that company one or more blanks in the form of the statement adopted by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and in use at the time furnished. The commissioner shall have power to make from time to time such modifications and additions in such form and the matters contained therein as he may deem desirable or necessary to ascertain the condition and affairs of the company.
