The Industrial Injuries Advisory Council (IIAC) has reviewed the evidence base for each prescribed disease. It has recommended changes to guidance about whether presumption, where it applies within the industrial injuries scheme, should be automatic and not be subject to rebuttal. The council recognises the need to retain the flexibility to rebut claims where it is clearly appropriate to do so and has not recommended any legislative changes.
