1.1.A.40 Acceptance period
For the purposes of the National Redress Scheme, the acceptance period is the length of time a person has to make a decision on whether to accept an offer of redress.
The acceptance period is determined by the Operator and must be at least 6 months starting on the date of offer. The Operator may extend the acceptance period if exceptional circumstances apply. The acceptance period then becomes the period prescribed by the Operator.
A person who receives an offer from the Operator may also request an extension of the acceptance period from the Operator before the end of the acceptance period.
