126   Assessment of costs—costs ordered by court or Commission or subject of agreement
(1)  When dealing with an application relating to costs payable as a result of an order made by a court or the Commission or as a result of an agreement referred to in clause 114 (1) (b), the Registrar must consider:
(a)  whether or not it was reasonable to carry out the work to which the costs relate, and
(b)  what is a fair and reasonable amount of costs for the work concerned.
(2)  The Registrar is to determine the costs payable as a result of the order or agreement by assessing the amount of the costs that, in his or her opinion, is a fair and reasonable amount.
(3)  If a court or the Commission has ordered that costs are to be assessed on an indemnity basis, the Registrar must assess the costs on that basis, having regard to any relevant rules of the court or Commission.
(4)  The costs assessed are to include the costs of the assessment (including the costs of the parties to the assessment, and the Registrar). The Registrar may determine by whom and to what extent the costs of the assessment are to be paid.
(5)  The costs of the Registrar are to be paid to the Commission.
 Subdivision 2 of Division 3 of this Part limits the circumstances in which costs may be awarded on a party/party basis in relation to a claim for work injury damages.
Clause 120 requires an assessment of costs to give effect to the maximum costs set out in Schedules 6 and 7, as well as to other matters.
