Amnesty program for Subsequent Reports of Injury (SROI) submissions has been extended through March 31, 2018

The California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) Workers’ Compensation Information System (WCIS) is extending the Subsequent Reports of Injury (SROI) amnesty program through March 31, 2018.   

Labor Code section 138.6 authorizes DWC to collect claims data.  The SROI requirements set forth in California Code of Regulations, title 8, sections 9701 (b), 9702(d) and 9702(g) require all claims administrators to submit SROI data electronically. The SROI amnesty program gives claims administrators the opportunity to comply with the SROI reporting requirements, and to facilitate their compliance, this amnesty program includes a variance on the requirement to submit historical data.

If you are a claims administrator interested in participating in the SROI amnesty program, please send an email to WCIS@DIR.CA.GOV. Please write “Request to participate in the SROI amnesty program” in the subject line, and include your contact information with email address in the body of the email.
