Section 7Benefits for Industrial Injuries and Diseases

Article 21

(1) Where the legislation of one Party applies to a person in accordance with any of the provisions of Articles 5 to 9 of this Convention he shall be treated under that legislation for the purpose of any claim for benefit in respect of an industrial accident or an industrial disease contracted during that employment, as if the accident had occurred or the disease had been contracted in the territory of that Party. Where benefit would be payable in respect of that claim if the person were in the territory of that Party, it shall be payable while he is in the territory of the other Party.

(2) Where a person sustains an accident after he leaves the territory of one Party to go in the course of his employment to the territory of the other Party but before he arrives in the latter territory, then, for the purpose of any claim for benefit in respect of that accident:

(a)the accident shall be treated as if it occurred in the territory of the Party whose legislation applied to him at the time the accident occurred; and

(b)his absence from the territory of that Party shall be disregarded in determining whether his employment was as an employed person under that legislation.

(3) For the purpose of applying paragraph (2) of this Article to persons covered by the provisions of Articles 5 to 9, “territory” includes the Continental Shelf Area or any ship or vessel of either Party.

(4) Where because of a death resulting from an industrial accident or an industrial disease, a benefit would be payable under the legislation of one Party in respect of a child if that child were in the territory of that Party, that benefit shall be payable while the child is in the territory of the other Party.

Article 22

(1) Where a person contracts an industrial disease, after having been subject to the legislation of both Parties in an occupation to which the disease may be attributed and he would be entitled to receive benefit in respect of that disease under the legislation of both Parties, whether by virtue of this Convention or otherwise, the benefit shall be payable only under the legislation of the Party in whose territory he was last employed in that occupation before the disease was diagnosed.

(2) Where a person has suffered an aggravation of an industrial disease which was first contracted while he was subject to the legislation of one Party the competent institution of that Party shall take account of any aggravation which takes place in the territory of the other Party, provided that the aggravation cannot be attributed to employment in the territory of the latter Party in an occupation entailing risks of such disease.
