The overarching aims of a national regime are to:
Compliance with high standards of quality assurance, risk management practices and disciplinary procedures, as well as required levels of professional development, ensure greater transparency and public accountability applies. The risks associated with members supplying services become more predictable, leading to the containment of the scale of risk to insurable levels.
PSL will protect consumers by making insurance compulsory for professionals who are members ofoccupational schemes. This ensures that, in the event that claims do arise, insurance cover exists to compensate plaintiffs and consumers can be more confident that they will be able to recover damages.
In addition, risk management practices have been designed to minimise the risk of claims arising in the first place.
CPA Australia believes that the implementation of PSL and capped liability on claims may lead to the lowering of PII premiums in the long term through a reduction in the number of, and amount paid, to settle claims.
This Act may be amended from time to time, and such modified or amended details shall be effective as to you and your information as of that revision date. The scheme formalises risk management practices, provides transparent and detailed complaint procedures, leading to improved service delivery for consumers.
