Accident Compensation Act 2001

65 Corporation may revise decisions


If the Corporation considers it made a decision in error, it may revise the decision at any time, whatever the reason for the error.


The Corporation may revise a decision deemed by section 58 to have been made in respect of any claim for cover, but may not recover from the claimant any payments made by it, in respect of the claim, before the date of the revision unless the claimant has made statements or provided information to the Corporation that are, in the opinion of the Corporation, intentionally misleading.


A revision may—


amend the original decision; or


revoke the original decision and substitute a new decision.


Every amendment to a decision, and every substituted decision, is a fresh decision.
