(b) the compensation rules provide for adequate compensation to be paid in respect of Division 3 losses (see section 885E); and


(c) the compensation rules deal adequately with how compensation in respect of Division 3 losses is to be paid (see section 885F); and


(d) the compensation rules deal adequately with the making and determination of claims in respect of Division 3 losses, and with the notification of the outcome of such claims (see section 885G); and


(e) the arrangements provide for an adequate source of funds for paying compensation in respect of Division 3 losses and in respect of any other losses covered by the arrangements (see section 885H); and


(f) the arrangements include adequate arrangements for administration and monitoring (see section 885I); and


(g) under the arrangements, potential claimants have reasonable and timely access to the compensation regime; and


(h) if the licensee ceases (for whatever reason) to be required to have Division 3 arrangements, the rights of people to seek compensation under the arrangements, being rights that accrued while the licensee was required to have such arrangements, will be adequately protected.
