22.1.1 Specific Diseases Declared under s7(1)


The Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations declares specific occupational diseases under s7(1). For declared diseases a connection is assumed for all of these conditions in respect of exposure in the ADF – note there still needs to be evidence that the claimant's employment involved exposure to the particular substance listed – once this is demonstrated the disease should be accepted under the Act, unless there is evidence to prove to the contrary.

The table of current declared diseases is at Appendix 2.
