For accidents post 1 July 2016, the CTP Insurance Regulator (Regulator) has been established as an independent statutory regulator under the Compulsory Third Party Insurance Regulation Act 2016.
The Regulator is responsible for:
- the oversight, monitoring and reporting of approved CTP insurer activities in the South Australian market,
- ensuring that a fair and affordable CTP Insurance Scheme (Scheme) is maintained,
- continuing to improve Scheme outcomes for the injured,
- providing consumer protections for motorists, and

CTP Insurance provides compensation for personal injury to people injured in road crashes where the driver or owner of a South Australian registered vehicle is at fault. It may also cover crash victims where a passenger is at fault.
The Motor Accident Commission is responsible for CTP Insurance claims that occurred on and before 30 June 2016. A claim may be made against the Motor Accident Commission where the driver or owner of a South Australian registered vehicle is at fault in an accident occurring prior to 1 July 2016. The CTP Insurance may also cover crash victims where a passenger is at fault.
CTP Insurance is governed by South Australian legislation, including in the following Acts of State Parliament: the Motor Vehicles Act 1959, the Civil Liability Act 1936 and the Compulsory Third Party Insurance Regulation Act 2016.
For more information about what compensation may be covered, please refer:
To make a CTP claim, you will need to comply with the legal claim notification requirements and complete an Approved Injury Claim form, including a Prescribed Authority, provided by Allianz. The Injury Claim Form will require specific crash information and is designed to assist Allianz in making an early decision on your access to treatment.
Where Allianz obtains information using the Prescribed Authority, a copy of that information will be provided to you. Once you have returned the completed Injury Claim Form and Prescribed Authority to Allianz, a claims consultant will contact you to discuss your claim.
MAC is committed to supporting early access to reasonable and necessary treatment to optimize your recovery from your injury, and providing a properly completed Approved Injury Claim Form and Prescribed Authority will assist MAC to achieve this goal.
