Section 196ZB

 

NOTIFICATION OF TERMINATION OF REVIEW

 

On 10 June 2016, the Specialist Medical Review Council (the Council) having been asked under section 196Y of the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 (the Act) to review some of the contents of Statements of Principles Nos. 25 and 26  of 2016 made by the Repatriation Medical Authority (the RMA) in respect Lyme disease, notified, under section 196ZB of the Act its intention to carry out a review of the information about Lyme disease available to the Repatriation Medical Authority (the RMA) when it determined, amended, or last amended the Statements of Principles.

 

Section 196Y(1) of the Act specifies who may ask the Council to review some or all of the contents of a Statement of Principles.

 

The Council has determined that the request under section 196Y(1) was invalid as the Applicant did not meet any of the definitions for eligibility to seek review under section 196(1)(a)-(c). Accordingly, the Council will not proceed to carry out a review of the contents of Statements of Principles Nos. 25 and 26 of 2016 in respect to Lyme disease.
