7.3.3 Policy: an application is 'made' upon receipt by DVA or other relevant authority


For the purposes of S27(3), policy is that an application is 'made' when it is actually received by DVA or, if the application is given to Comcare or the ADF, when it is actually received by those bodies.


In most cases, a date stamp on the document, or its entry in a register, should be taken as best evidence of the date of receipt, however this presumption about date of receipt may be set aside by other evidence in the particular circumstances of the case.
