The above five sections of the SRCA are relevant in day to day dealings with PI claims. This chapter outlines the contents of the various sections. A complete version of the sections is in Part II of the SRCA .

Detailed writings on the Guide to the Assessment of the Degree of Permanent Impairment (the Approved Guide as per section 28 of the SRCA) are at Chapter 5 of this manual.

Note that section 147 states that for the purposes of applying the SRCA to defence-related claims, references to Comcare are read as if they are references to the Military, Rehabilitation and Compensation Commission (MRCC).

Additionally, section 13 explains that monetary amounts in subsections 24(9) and 27(2) (among others) are indexed, so delegates should check CLIK for the current statutory amounts via the following link.
