4.2 Indemnification of medical reporting

The CASR provides indemnification against civil or criminal liability for any DAME that, in good faith, performs an indemnified act in accordance with the Regulations. Refer CASR 67.140.

For this purpose, 'an indemnified act' means any act whereby a DAME, (including a CO) advises CASA of any concerns over the ability of a medical certificate holder or applicant to meet a required medical standard for such certification. CASA requires such advice to include written notification via the MRS.

Health practitioners and some organisations may have concerns about the handling and passing of personal medical information to CASA. Obligations relating to the MRS are detailed in Chapter 13 of the DAME Handbook.
