Summary

The Central African Republic (CAR) is a member country of the Conf?rence Interafricaine des March?s d’Assurances (CIMA), which is an integrated organization of insurance industries in Africa formed by the governments of 14 African countries. The CAR’s insurance industry is governed by the Direction des Services Centraux (DSC), which is an organ of the Secr?tariat G?n?ral des Finances et du Budget. The DSC is responsible for monitoring and developing the state policy in the field of insurance in the CAR.

However, the regional insurance regulator of the CIMA region, the Commission Regional des Assurances (CRCA), has a greater influence on the supervision of insurance business in all the CIMA member states. The DSC grants licenses for companies willing to operate in the CAR only after obtaining consent from the CRCA. Rules and regulations governing the insurance industries in all CIMA member states, including the CAR, are formulated and implemented by the CRCA. The CAR’s insurance industry is governed in accordance with the provisions of the CIMA Code, which is the regional insurance law, imposed by the CIMA under the treaty signed by the Francophone African states.
