Ch 47 Special Cases

Last amended 
28 November 2016

A number of claims will be received by MRCC offices that, because of the nature of the injury, the location or activity the person was engaged in at the time, will require specific actions or procedures to be followed.


Whilst not an exhaustive list, such claims could include:

  • accidents involving HMAS Melbourne
  • exposure to ionising radiation
  • exposure to asbestos
  • claims arising from sexual or physical abuse
  • claims arising from the F111 reseal/deseal program at RAAF Base Amberley


Delegates will, of course, apply the usual tests for deciding whether liability exists. However, due to some particular issues affecting these claims, specific instructions and information on these claims have been included in the Initial Liability handbook.
