Workers Compensation Regulation 2010
Repealed version for 30 June 2016 to 31 August 2016 (accessed 24 September 2017 at 13:02)
 Expressions used in this Part have the same meaning as in Division 8 of Part 2 of Chapter 4 of the 1998 Act. An agent is a person who acts, or holds himself or herself out as willing to act, as agent for a person for fee or reward in connection with a claim, but does not include a legal practitioner.
Each of the following activities is considered to constitute acting as agent for a person in relation to a claim:
(a)  advising the person with respect to the making of a claim,
(b)  assisting the person to complete or prepare, or completing or preparing on behalf of the person, any form, correspondence or other document concerning a claim,
(c)  making arrangements for any test or medical examination to determine the person’s entitlement to compensation,
(d)  arranging referral of the person to a lawyer for the performance of legal work in connection with a claim.
A reference to a claim includes a reference to a prospective claim (whether or not the claim is ever actually made).
