Release of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Specified Laws) Amendment Declaration 2020

4 September 2020

The Minister has now made the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Specified Laws) Amendment Declaration 2020 (the Amendment Declaration) updating the list of specified State and Territory laws under section 119 of the SRC Act relating to compensation for employees where State or Territory compensation is also payable.

The Amendment Instrument will amend the 2017 Declaration to add the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2019 (ACT) (MAI Act) to the list of specified laws outlined in Schedule 1 of the declaration. The MAI Act is a ACT law that came into effect on 1 February 2020, under which compensation is recoverable for injury, or loss or damage to certain property. It establishes a scheme of compulsory third-party insurance and provision of benefits and support relating to the death of or injury to persons as a consequence of motor accidents.

The Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation (Specified Laws) Amendment Declaration 2020 will take effect on 4 September 2020.

The details of the amendment are available on the Instruments and notices page.
