1. The purpose of this Businessline is to provide all staff involved in processing compensation claims submitted by former F-111 fuel tank maintenance workers with policy and procedures to be used to progress their claims and to ensure consistency in the decision making process for all claimants.


2. This Businessline consolidates previous businesslines and advice for processing compensation claims for former and current ADF personnel involved in F-111 formal deseal/reseal maintenance and related work, such as 'Pick and Patch', between 1973 and 2000.  This Businessline replaces the one issued by the then Branch Head Disability Compensation on 16 May 2006 and the one issued by the National Manager F-111 Implementation on 2 June 2010.  It specifically covers the F-111 Tier definitions and the ICD-10 codes for accepted conditions under ss7(2) of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (SRCA) in relation to tier classified former F-111 personnel.
