MBIE are seeking feedback on a proposed review framework for the list of occupational diseases covered under the AC Act, as set out in Schedule 2 of that Act.
MBIE are consulting on the proposed framework because they want to ensure that the list of occupational diseases appropriately reflects those that working New Zealanders experience.
The process would also support fair claimant access to the AC Scheme’s gradual process cover.
MBIE are seeking views on the whole framework, specific stages, the objectives we have assessed it against and our assessment of alternative options.
MBIE also welcome suggestions of alternative review frameworks.
ACC are not seeking views on any expansion of the AC Scheme in this consultation, including additional occupational diseases to include in Schedule 2
