EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

 

Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988

 

Issued by the Minister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Jobs and Employment Relations

 

Notice of a Disallowable Instrument

 

 

Variation of Edition 2.1 of the Guide to the Assessment of the Degree of Permanent Impairment

 

 

The purpose of the instrument to which this Explanatory Statement relates, is to approve the variation of Edition 2.1 of the Guide to the Assessment of the Degree of Permanent Impairment (the Guide), setting out the criteria by which the degree of permanent impairment and non-economic loss suffered by an injured employee shall be assessed for the purposes of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (the SRC Act).

 

Section 28 of the SRC Act provides that Comcare may prepare a written document, to be called the “Guide to the Assessment of the Degree of Permanent Impairment” and may, from time to time, vary or revoke the approved Guide. In accordance with subsections 28(2) and (3), the instrument varies Edition 2.1, to commence on 1 December 2011.

 

The instrument is a legislative instrument within the meaning of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003.

 

The variation to Edition 2.1 corrects a typographical error that created ambiguity surrounding the implementation date of Edition 2.1.

 

Due to the minor nature of this legislative instrument, it has not been released for public consultation.  However, the original instrument that this instrument varies, Edition 2.1, was released for consultation between 14 April 2011 and 13 May 2011.
