Eligibility for self-insurance for private corporations

Once declared eligible by the Minister an organisation may then apply to the SRCC for a self-insurance licence.

The self-insurance licence application must contain those elements as set out in the Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Regulations 2019 (Part 4).

The licence application must:

  • define the scope of the licence
  • be signed by the organisation's principle officer
  • include the applicant's organisational structure, ABN, location and number of employees
  • include details of the organisation's:
    - financial and insurance details
    - consultation processes
    - rehabilitation management
    - benefit delivery arrangements
    - preventative measures
    - arrangement to secure liabilities
    - claims management system.

Once all this information is provided, then the SRCC will consider the licence application.
