10.5.1 Use of the CWPI amount in R&C ISH
The CWPI for eligible 1988 impairments is used by R&C ISH in two calculations:
- to calculate the amount of compensation for permanent impairment under S24 of the SRCA (1988 Act impairments), and
- if the investigation includes only 1988 impairments, as the 'A' amount in S27(2), which is an element of the formula for calculation of compensation for non-economic loss under S27 (1988 Act impairments).
The individual values to be used in the calculation and as displayed in the Calculator are subject to adjustment for the following reasons:
- if the impairment is not eligible for compensation, the adjusted value will be zero
- if the impairment is a hearing claim and there are other impairments, the value will be rounded to the nearest whole integer.
There are several resources available to assist in the use of R&C ISH for Permanent Impairment Determinations. Please see the R&C ISH user guides for further details.
