EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

 

Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988

 

Issued by the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission

 

Notice of a Disallowable Instrument and

Statement of Compatibility with Human Rights

 

 

Regulatory Contributions Determination Guidelines 2012

 

 

The purpose of the instrument to which this notice relates is to issue guidelines for the determination by Comcare of the annual regulatory contributions payable to Comcare by the employers of employees of the Commonwealth and Commonwealth authorities.  They guide Comcare’s consideration of the matters set out in section 97D of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (the SRC Act).

 

Section 97E of the SRC Act provides that the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission (the Commission) may prepare and issue guidelines to the Chief Executive Officer of Comcare for that purpose. 

 

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

 

The instrument was developed by the Commission in consultation with Comcare.  Given the purpose and limited scope of this interest and employee and employer representation on the Commission the instrument was not released for public consultation.

 

As the regulatory contribution paying employers are public sector agencies the instrument has no impact on business and the non-profit sector and no regulation impact statement was required.

 

The instrument does not raise any human rights issues and is compatible with the human rights and freedoms recognised or declared in the international instruments listed in section 3 of the Human Rights (Parliamentary Scrutiny) Act 2011.

 

The retrospective operation of this instrument is authorised and will not be detrimental to any persons captured by this instrument.
