We are responsible for regulating workers compensation insurance, motor accidents compulsory third party (CTP) insurance and home building compensation insurance, in NSW.
We were established by the State Insurance and Care Governance Act 2015 as part of reforms to the NSW workers compensation system and are an independent agency located within the NSW Customer Service Cluster.
We focus on service delivery to injured people, affordability, and the effective management and sustainability of these insurance schemes. For more information on how we regulate the systems, see fraud and regulation.
