8.3.5 SRCA - Operational coverage pre and post 7 April 1994
Last amended: 12 April 2011
In practice this means that prior to the SRCA amendments wrought by the Military Compensation Act on 7 April 1994, neither the SRCA nor any of the previous Commonwealth worker's compensation Acts applied to injuries or diseases arising solely out of 'Operational Service'.
However, following the insertion of Ss5(10A) by the Military Compensation Act on 7 April 1994, the SRCA began coverage of Operational Service. Note: This amendment had prospective effect only. The Act still does not apply to operational service prior to 7 April 1994.
