The Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (SRC Act) allows certain Commonwealth authorities and eligible corporations to apply to the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission (SRCC) for a license to self-insure their workers' compensation liabilities and/or claims management.

For more information on licence conditions, please refer to the self insurance section on the Commission's website.
