10.1.14.20 Termination of Agreements

Termination

Australia's agreements contain an Article that says what will happen should the agreement be terminated.

Usually an agreement will terminate 12 months after a country has notified the other country of its intention to terminate. When an agreement is terminated, payments that became payable before the date of termination continue to be paid as if the agreement were still operating. The same applies to claims that are lodged before the date the agreement is terminated. These claims can be granted and continue to be paid as if the agreement were still operating.

The only agreement Australia has terminated is the Agreement with the UK. This Agreement was terminated from 1 March 2001. See 10.3 for information on the former Agreement with the UK.
