1.1.R.30 Released institution or official

Definition

For the purposes of the National Redress Scheme, a person choosing to accept an offer for redress must provide an acceptance document to the Scheme. The document must state that as a condition of accepting an offer for redress, the person releases and forever discharges the institutions named in the document, and their officials, from civil liability within the scope of the NRSAct. The person also releases associates of the responsible institution. However, the release will not include officials that are abusers. All institutions named in the acceptance document, and their officials, are a released institution or official.
