Workers' Compensation and Rehabilitation and Other Legislation
Amendment Act 2013 was passed in Queensland
The official assent of the Bill has resulted in the merger of
the Workers' Compensation Regulatory Authority (Q-COMP) into the
Office of Fair and Safe Work Queensland creating a combined safety
and compensation regulator in the Department of Justice and
As a result of this merge, Q-COMP will now be known as the
Workers' Compensation Regulator.
The former Q-COMP logo and brand will begin to be replaced with
that of the Department of Justice and Attorney-General. During this
transition process, the website qcomp.com.au will continue to
operate and all documents, forms and templates that contain the
former Q-COMP logo can continue to be used until updated versions
are made available.
