                     (a)  a terrorist act has happened in Australia; or

                     (b)  2 or more related terrorist acts have happened in Australia;

then the Minister must, by legislative instrument, declare that the act constitutes, or the acts together constitute, a declared terrorist incident for the purposes of this Act.

             (2)  A terrorist act cannot be taken into account for the purposes of subsection (1) if the Minister is satisfied that it is an act of war.

             (3)  A terrorist act that consists merely of a threat of action cannot be taken into account for the purposes of subsection (1) unless the Minister is satisfied that the threat resulted in economic loss to a person.

             (4)  A terrorist act that consists of threatened action is taken to have happened in Australia if, and only if, the threatened action would happen in Australia.

          (4A)  Before making a declaration under this section, the Minister must consult the Minister administering the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation Act 1979.

             (5)  A declaration under this section cannot be revoked.

             (6)  A declaration under this section may specify a reduction percentage that applies to the declared terrorist incident for the purposes of section 8.

             (7)  A reduction percentage must be specified if the Minister considers that, in the absence of a reduction percentage, the total amounts paid or payable by the Commonwealth under section 35 (including amounts not related to the act or acts specified in the declaration) would be more than $10,000 million.

             (8)  The Minister may, by legislative instrument, vary the reduction percentage, but only by making it smaller. The percentage may be varied more than once.

             (9)  The Minister may delegate his or her powers under this section to:

                     (a)  the Secretary of the Department; or

                     (b)  an SES employee, or acting SES employee, in the Department.

7  Eligible insurance contracts

             (1)  A contract of insurance is an eligible insurance contract to the extent that it provides insurance cover for one or more of the following:

                     (a)  loss of, or damage to, eligible property that is owned by the insured;

                     (b)  business interruption and consequential loss arising from:

                              (i)  loss of, or damage to, eligible property that is owned or occupied by the insured; or

                             (ii)  inability to use eligible property, or part of eligible property, that is owned or occupied by the insured;

                     (c)  liability of the insured that arises out of the insured being the owner or occupier of eligible property.

             (2)  A contract covered by subsection (1) is not an eligible insurance contract to the extent to which it is:

                     (a)  a contract of reinsurance; or

                     (b)  prescribed by the regulations for the purposes of this subsection.

             (3)  A contract of insurance is not an eligible insurance contract if it is made in the course of State insurance not extending beyond the limits of the State concerned.

             (4)  This section extends to contracts made before the commencement of this section.

8  Effect of terrorism exclusions in eligible insurance contracts

             (1)  A terrorism exclusion in an eligible insurance contract has no effect in relation to a loss or liability to the extent to which the loss or liability is an eligible terrorism loss.

             (2)  For the purposes of subsection (1), terrorism exclusion means an exclusion or exception (however described) for:

                     (a)  acts that are described using the word “terrorism” or “terrorist” or words of similar effect; or

                     (b)  other acts (however described) that are substantially similar to terrorist acts as defined in section 100.1 of the Criminal Code; or

                     (c)  acts that are described using the word “chemical”, “biological”, “polluting”, “contaminating”, “pathogenic” or “poisoning” or words of similar effect.

             (3)  If:

                     (a)  apart from this subsection, an amount (the base amount) would be payable under the contract, solely because of this section, in respect of a declared terrorist incident; and

                     (b)  a reduction percentage applies to the declared terrorist incident; and

                     (c)  if the contract was made on or after 1 October 2003—the insurer is reinsured with the Corporation in respect of the whole or a part of the insurer’s liabilities under the contract that arise solely because of this section;

then the base amount is to be reduced by the reduction percentage.

             (4)  The Corporation is liable to compensate an insurer for:

                     (a)  a liability incurred by the insurer under a protected contract, to the extent that the liability arises solely because of this section; and

                     (b)  expenditure incurred by the insurer in connection with, or arising from, the assessment, management, conduct, rejection, defence or settlement of a claim by the insured, to the extent to which the claim is:

                              (i)  under a protected contract; and

                             (ii)  in respect of a liability that arises (or is alleged to arise) solely because of this section.

For the purposes of this subsection, protected contract means an eligible insurance contract that is in force at the startup time or is entered into after the startup time and before 1 October 2003.

Part 2ACyclone and related flood damage reinsurance pool

  

8A  When cyclone risks must be reinsured with the Corporation

             (1)  If a general insurer carries on insurance business that includes undertaking liability, under pool insurance contracts, in respect of eligible cyclone losses, the insurer must maintain contracts of reinsurance with the Corporation that:

                     (a)  cover the insurer’s liability, under all pool insurance contracts that it enters into, in respect of all eligible cyclone losses; and

                     (b)  insure against 100% of the insurer’s liability, under each of those pool insurance contracts, in respect of all eligible cyclone losses.

Note:          A pecuniary penalty may be imposed for a contravention of this subsection: see section 127F of the Insurance Act 1973.

             (2)  Subsection (1) has effect subject to a direction that is in force under section 38 and provides for the extent to which risk is to be retained by reinsureds under the relevant contracts of reinsurance.

             (3)  Subsection (1) has effect even if the general insurer has entered into a contract of reinsurance otherwise than with the Corporation.

             (4)  The Corporation may enter into contracts of reinsurance that insure against the reinsureds’ liability, under pool insurance contracts, in respect of eligible cyclone losses arising on and after 1 July 2022.

Exception where premium income is below prescribed threshold in previous financial year

             (5)  Subsection (1) does not apply to a general insurer during a calendar year if the amount worked out under subsection (6) does not exceed the threshold amount prescribed by the regulations.

             (6)  For the purposes of subsection (5), the amount is the total gross written premiums that the reporting standard prescribed by the regulations for the purposes of this subsection would require the general insurer to report to APRA:

                     (a)  in respect of the last financial year of the general insurer that ended before the start of the calendar year referred to in subsection (5); and

                     (b)  for a class of direct business consisting of contracts of insurance:

                              (i)  that the general insurer enters into as insurer; and

                             (ii)  that are wholly or partly pool insurance contracts; and

                            (iii)  under which the insurer undertakes any liability in respect of eligible cyclone losses (whether or not the contracts cover other risks) other than eligible cyclone losses arising at a place covered by a determination in force under subsection (7);

if such contracts were a distinct class of direct insurance business.

             (7)  The Corporation may, by notifiable instrument, determine areas where, in its opinion, the risk of eligible cyclone losses arising is so small as to be negligible.

One in, all in rule for exempt general insurer

             (8)  However, if a general insurer enters into a contract of reinsurance with the Corporation that insures against the insurer’s liability under a pool insurance contract in respect of eligible cyclone losses, subsection (5) does not apply to the general insurer while that contract of reinsurance is in force.

How this section applies to a Lloyd’s syndicate

             (9)  If a syndicate of Lloyd’s underwriters enter into a contract of reinsurance with the Corporation that insures against their liability under a pool insurance contract in respect of eligible cyclone losses, then, while that contract of reinsurance is in force, subsections (1), (2) and (3) apply to:

                     (a)  the syndicate; and

                     (b)  each Lloyd’s underwriter who is a member of the syndicate, when acting in that capacity;

in the same way as those subsections apply to a general insurer.

How this section applies to an unauthorised foreign insurer

           (10)  If an unauthorised foreign insurer enters into a contract of reinsurance with the Corporation that insures against the liability of the foreign insurer under a pool insurance contract in respect of eligible cyclone losses, then, while that contract of reinsurance is in force, subsections (1), (2) and (3) apply to that foreign insurer in the same way as those subsections apply to a general insurer.

8B  Definition of pool insurance contract

             (1)  A contract of insurance is a pool insurance contract to the extent (but only to the extent) that:

                     (a)  it provides insurance cover that is of a kind referred to in subsection (2) and also of a kind referred to in subsection (3), whether or not the cover is limited or restricted in any way, and whether or not the contract also provides any other insurance cover; or

                     (b)  it is prescribed by the regulations for the purposes of this paragraph.

Note:          Subsections (5) to (8) contain exclusions.

Type of risk covered

             (2)  The kinds of insurance cover referred to in this subsection are the following:

                     (a)  insurance cover for loss of, or damage to, eligible property that is owned by the insured;

                     (b)  insurance cover for business interruption and consequential loss arising from:

                              (i)  loss of, or damage to; or

                             (ii)  inability to use all or part of;

                            eligible property that is owned or occupied by the insured.

Note:          An example of insurance cover referred to in paragraph (b) is a contract of insurance that is entered into by the owner of leased premises and insures against loss of rental income if the premises are damaged.

Type of cover

             (3)  The kinds of insurance cover referred to in this subsection are the following:

                     (a)  insurance cover in respect of a home building;

                     (b)  insurance cover in respect of contents of a home building;

                     (c)  if:

                              (i)  the insured is the body corporate for a strata or community title development; and

                             (ii)  at least 50% of the total floor space of the units in the development is used wholly or mainly for residential purposes;

                            insurance cover in respect of either or both of:

                            (iii)  a building located on land that is included in the development; and

                            (iv)  contents of such a building;

                     (d)  insurance cover (other than insurance cover of a kind referred to in paragraph (a), (b) or (c)):

                              (i)  that is in respect of a building, contents of a building, or both; and

                             (ii)  for which the total of the sums insured does not exceed the amount prescribed by the regulations for the purposes of this paragraph.

Terms used in subsection (3) that are defined by the regulations

             (4)  For the purposes of a paragraph of subsection (3):

building means a building as defined by the regulations for the purposes of that paragraph.

contents means contents as defined by the regulations for the purposes of that paragraph.

home building means a home building as defined by the regulations for the purposes of that paragraph.

Exclusion from subsection (3) of buildings owned and managed by government entities

             (5)  Paragraph (3)(a) or (d) does not apply if:

                     (b)  the home building or building, as the case may be, is managed by such a government entity (whether or not the same as the one referred to in paragraph (a) of this subsection).

Other exclusions

             (6)  A contract is not a pool insurance contract to the extent that it provides cover of a kind referred to in paragraph (3)(a) or (b) if the contract also provides cover that would be of a kind referred to in paragraph (3)(d) but for the fact that the last‑mentioned cover does not satisfy subparagraph (3)(d)(ii).

             (7)  A contract is not a pool insurance contract to the extent that:

                     (a)  it is a contract of reinsurance; or

                     (b)  it provides insurance cover (other than insurance cover of a kind referred to in paragraph (3)(a) or (b)) to a farm business, including:

                              (i)  producing crops or livestock, or produce derived from the crops or livestock; and

                             (ii)  secondary processing of, or manufacturing goods from, the crops, livestock or produce, at the place where the crops or livestock are produced; and

                            (iii)  the interests of the insured in property used in doing something covered by subparagraph (i) or (ii) of this paragraph; or

                     (c)  it is prescribed by the regulations for the purposes of this subsection.

             (8)  A contract of insurance is not a pool insurance contract if it is made in the course of State insurance not extending beyond the limits of the State concerned.

             (9)  Subsections (6) to (8) have effect despite subsection (1).

8C  Definition of eligible cyclone loss

             (1)  For the purposes of this Act, an eligible cyclone loss is a loss that satisfies the conditions in subsections (2) and (3).

             (2)  The loss must arise:

                     (a)  from the weather system in relation to which a cyclone event was declared under subsection 8F(1); or

                     (b)  without limiting the generality of paragraph (a) of this subsection, from any of the following that is caused by that weather system:

                              (i)  wind, rain, rainwater or rainwater runoff;

                             (ii)  a storm surge, as defined by the regulations for the purposes of this subparagraph;

                            (iii)  a flood, as defined by the regulations for the purposes of this subparagraph.

             (3)  The loss must commence during the claims period for the cyclone event referred to in paragraph (2)(a).

8D  Setting reinsurance premiums

                   When setting premiums that reinsureds are to pay under cyclone reinsurance contracts, the Corporation is to seek:

                     (a)  to ensure that, over the longer term, premiums paid under such contracts are sufficient to cover or offset:

                              (i)  the amounts paid in meeting the Corporation’s liabilities under such contracts (including payments by the Commonwealth under section 35A in respect of such liabilities); and

                             (ii)  all other amounts applied by the Corporation as mentioned in subsection 34(1), in so far as those amounts may reasonably be regarded as connected with the cyclone reinsurance scheme; and

                     (b)  in so far as those premiums are for reinsuring liability under pool insurance contracts that involve medium to high levels of exposure to eligible cyclone losses—to keep the premiums as low as possible while maintaining incentives to reduce and mitigate the risk of eligible cyclone losses; and

                     (c)  in so far as those premiums are for reinsuring liability under pool insurance contracts that involve lower levels of exposure to eligible cyclone losses—to keep those premiums at levels comparable to what would be charged by other reinsurers.

8E  Bureau to notify the Corporation when cyclone begins and ends

             (1)  If the Bureau determines that:

                     (a)  a cyclone exists or has reintensified; and

                     (b)  the cyclone is likely to affect any part of Australia;

the Bureau must notify the Corporation that the cyclone exists or has reintensified, specifying the day and time when, in the Bureau’s opinion, the cyclone began or reintensified, as the case may be.

             (2)  If:

                     (a)  the Bureau determines that a cyclone has ended; and

                     (b)  the cyclone is one about which the Bureau has notified the Corporation under subsection (1);

the Bureau must notify the Corporation that the cyclone has ended, specifying the day and time when, in the Bureau’s opinion, the cyclone ended.

             (3)  A notification under this section must be given:

                     (a)  as soon as practicable, and in any event within 24 hours, after the Bureau determines as mentioned in subsection (1) or (2), as the case may be; and

                     (b)  in writing sent by electronic communication within the meaning of the Electronic Transactions Act 1999.

Note:          This section confers functions on the Bureau in addition to its functions under the Meteorology Act 1955.

8F  Declarations about cyclone events

             (1)  If the Bureau notifies the Corporation that a cyclone exists or has reintensified, the Corporation must declare that a cyclone event has begun. The declaration must:

                     (a)  specify the day and time when the cyclone began or reintensified, as notified by the Bureau; and

                     (b)  state that the claims period for the cyclone event began on that day at that time.
