A future where every journey is a safe one

TAC legislation and regulations

The legislation

This is the main legislation that guides the TAC in the types of benefits it can pay and any conditions that apply.

On 8 November 2013, the Victorian Parliament passed 26 amendments to the Transport Accident Act 1986 to ensure people affected by road trauma get the most appropriate care, treatment and compensation well into the future.

These amendments need to be read in conjunction with the Transport Accident Act 1986 listed above.
