Calculating the Expiry Date

Step 1

  • Enter the current year
  • Subtract the year of birth shown on the medical
  • This will identify the individuals age (then refer to table below to calculate expiry)

Step 2

  • The expiration date for this competency should always be calculated to occur on the applicants 40th
    birthday,
    so you would enter 40 minus the individuals age, then add this number to the current year
    which will give the year
    of expiry. The day and month will be as per date of birth.

Example for medical conducted in 2017:
2017 - 1991 = 26
40 - 26 = 14
2017 + 14 = 2031

Exception

  1. If the applicant had the medical completed within 12 months of their 40th birthday you would then
    allocate an expiration of 5 years
  2. After the applicant passes the age of 40, medicals are to be completed every 5 years
  3. When the doctor has explicitly indicated an earlier review date is required this date must be entered
    as the expiry


NOTE: The fitness for duty page of the TFNSW Contractor Health Assessment Request and Report Form can be accepted with an expiration of 40 years despite the declaration sentence which is printed on the
form which states 'This assessment is only valid for five years from the date of my signature below ...
'however if the doctor has explicitly indicated an earlier review date is required as a recommendation which is separate to that sentence / declaration, this should be used for the expiration date entry in Onsite.
