22.1.1 Specific Diseases Declared under s7(1)
For declared diseases a connection is assumed, where the relevant requirements are met. Note there still needs to be evidence that the claimant's employment in the ADF involved exposure to the particular substance etc listed and they have met the relevant employment period – 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.
