8.2.3 Criteria for acceptance under previous Acts
Note that the criteria for acceptance of accidental injuries suffered under the previous Acts, is essentially the same as that now current under the SRCA, i.e. 'arising out of or in the course of' employment. However, for acceptance of liability for diseases the criteria have some significant differences, i.e.:
- the SRCA requires military employment to have contributed in a material degree (where date of injury is prior to 13 April 2007) or to a significant degree (where date of injury is on or after 13 April 2007 to the disease.
- the 1971 Act requires military employment to have contributed to the disease.
- the 1930 Act requires the disease to have arisen due to the nature of the military employment.
These criteria are discussed at more length at 15.1 and 15.2.
