Permanent Impairment Guide – stakeholder consultation (Comcare scheme)

For: Employers and managers Advocates

Comcare has drafted a revised Guide to the Assessment of the Degree of Permanent Impairment (edition 3) for the purpose of assessing compensation claims for permanent impairment and non-economic loss made under the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (SRC Act).

Please note that Comcare has decided to re-make the current guide and is not proposing to adopt the Safe Work Australia national guide template as previously indicated.

While we are proposing to remake the current guide, Comcare is taking the opportunity to make minor amendments to correct identified errors in the current guide.

We have prepared a submission guide to seek stakeholder views on the draft Guide (version 3.0).
