Welcome to SIRA

The State Insurance Regulatory Authority

SIRA is the government organisation responsible for the regulatory functions for workers compensation insurance, motor accidents compulsory third party (CTP) insurance and home building compensation.

We focus on ensuring key public policy outcomes are achieved in relation to service delivery to injured people, affordability, and the effective management and sustainability of these insurance schemes.

Motor Accidents (CTP) Regulation

SIRA regulates the NSW motor accidents insurance scheme, a privately underwritten compulsory third party personal injury insurance scheme.

We monitor insurer performance, support road safety initiatives, promote optimal recovery for injured people and provide an independent dispute resolution service.

SIRA assumes the functions of the former Motor Accidents Authority.
