10.1 Offices Responsible for Reconsiderations


At the date of writing, reconsiderations are carried out in only two offices of the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission (MRCC); the MRCC's National Office in Canberra and the MRCC's Brisbane office. Please forward all requests for reconsideration for clients living in VIC, NSW, TAS, ACT and WA to

Section 62 of the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1988 (SRC Act) is the part of the Act which provides for reconsideration of determinations made, in the context, by delegates who work with the MRCC. For the purposes of the SRC Act, the MRCC is a 'determining authority'. Section 62 actually reads:

62 (1) A determining authority may, on its own motion:

a) reconsider a determination made by it, or

b) cause such a determination to be reconsidered by a person to whom its power under this section is delegated, being a person other than the person who made, or was involved in the making of the determination, whether or not a proceeding has been instituted or completed under this part in respect of a reviewable decision made in relation to that determination.
