A certificate of compliance will be issued by the deputy commissioner for his district (1) upon receipt by him and his acceptance of a card report of issuance of a policy of insurance to the instrumentality as provided by $ 92.4 of this subchapter, by an authorized insurance carrier which has filed an agreement to be bound by a card report in conformity with $ 92.6 of this subchapter, or (2) upon presentation to the deputy commissioner by the authorized administrative oficer of the instrumentality (and not by an insurance carrier, insurance agency, or broker) of the applicable policy of insurance then in force, and endorsement thereon, issued to the instruinentality in con

(c) Two forms of the certificate of compliance have been provided for by the Bureau of Employees' Compensation: (1) The form used where the instrumentality has obtained insurance generally under the regulations in this subchapter, and (2) the form used where the instrumentality has been authorized to secure compensation as a self-insurer. $ 94.2 Return of certificate of com.
