AFCA notes the decision handed down by the NSW Supreme Court of Appeals today regarding the business interruption insurance test case which was heard by the NSW Court of Appeals on 2 October 2020, and thanks those involved, notably the insurers and small businesses that took part in the test case.

AFCA will review and consider the Court’s decision about the application of a common insurance policy exclusion relating to the repealed Quarantine Act 1908 in its decision making, and will continue to work with regulators, industry and small businesses to resolve disputes fairly.
