At the request of the Department for Work and Pensions, the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council (IIAC) reviewed and amended the recommendation it made in May 2014 in ‘Dupuytren’s contracture due to hand-transmitted vibration’ to prescribe Dupuytren’s contracture as a disease for Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit. It was always the council’s intention that the most disabling element of this condition is covered and this note clarifies the eligibility conditions.
