Celebrating 30 years since the commencement of the Insurance Contracts Act 1984  on 1 January 1986, this 7th edition of Mann’s Annotated Insurance Contracts Act marks an important milestone in the Act’s history. It incorporates all the amendments made to the ICA by the Insurance Contracts Amendment Act 2013 (ICAA 2013) and its significant regime of changes.  There changes covered the areas of: utmost good faith, electronic communication, the powers of ASIC, disclosure and misrepresentations, remedies under contracts of life insurance, the rights of third party beneficiaries and subrogation.

Various tranches of the amendments came into effect on four separate dates which included the date of assent, that is, 28 June 2013, 28 December 2013, 28 June 2014 with the final amendments becoming operative on 28 December 2015. The 2013 amendments generally apply to contracts of insurance entered into, or renewed, or varied after the respective commencement date.
