A review of the national compensation scheme for seafarers was undertaken by Mr Robin Stewart-Crompton in 2012.
Seacare is the national scheme of occupational health and safety, rehabilitation, and workers' compensation that applies to seafaring employees and others defined under the Seafarers, Rehabilitation and Compensation Act 1992 and the Occupational Health and Safety (Maritime Industry) Act 1993.
The scheme is overseen by the Seafarers Safety, Rehabilitation and Compensation Authority (Seacare Authority).
The final report of the Review of the Seacare scheme was publicly released on 20 May 2013. The report outlines 67 recommendations to modernise the scheme for seafarers to ensure it is working effectively and efficiently.
