The NSW Government proposes to reform insurer profit from the CTP Green Slip Scheme and improve outcomes for NSW motorists and people injured on our roads.

  • The Issue

    Consultation period: 04/11/2016 12:00 am to 25/11/2016 11:59 pm

    A discussion paper has been released on proposed actions to stop insurer super-profits, as well as a terms of reference.

    The government is proposing a number of reforms to the scheme, including:

    • the introduction of a defined benefit ‘no-fault’ scheme for low to moderate injuries
    • retain common law for those with more serious injuries
    • and for the first time extend protection to an extra 7,000 road users per year not covered under the current ‘at-fault’ scheme.

    Written submissions may be published on our website. If you do not want your submission or any part of it published, you must clearly indicate this at the time of submission, however, the government reserves the right to publish submissions in the public interest.
