About us

As a regulator, our purpose is to ensure that our insurance and support systems are easy to deal with and deliver good outcomes at an affordable price and in a sustainable way.

SIRA regulates workers compensation insurance, CTP (Green Slips) insurance and home building compensation insurance in NSW and provides independent dispute resolution services.

We also have specific functions within the Lifetime Care and Support Scheme and the Dust Diseases Scheme.

We have a strong role to play in funding, educating and promoting injury prevention and reducing the need for compensation claims.

Our purpose

We advance the wellbeing and confidence of the people and businesses of NSW through sustainable insurance and support systems, so they can actively engage in the economy and society.

As a regulator, our purpose is to ensure that our insurance and support systems are easy to deal with and deliver protection, recovery and restoration entitlements and good outcomes at an affordable price and in a sustainable way.

We regulate so that people who may have had the worst day of their life are supported to recover, return home and move forward.
