Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998 provide complete indemnification against civil or criminal liability for any medical practitioner or other nominated person or organisation that, in good faith, performs an indemnified act in accordance with the Regulations. Refer CASR 67.140.

For this purpose, 'an indemnified act' means any act whereby a DAME, other medical practitioner or other specified person (including a CO) advises CASA of any concerns over the ability of a medical certificate holder or applicant to meet a required medical standard for such certification. CASA requires such advice to be provided in writing.
