Application Texts


The contribution rate for work-related accidents and occupational diseases is determined by establishment. The classification of establishments in a risk category shall be carried out by the relevant regional health insurance funds, according to the activity carried out according to a risk nomenclature annexed to the order of 17 October 1995 relating to the Risk-setting for occupational accidents and diseases. In accordance with the directives formulated in March 2001 by the Committee on Workers' Compensation and Occupational Diseases, the National Technical Committee of the Transport, Water, Gas and Electricity Industries, the Book and the Communication carried out a work on the revision of the risk codes and approved, in particular at its meeting on 11 June 2002, the consolidation into a single number of ten risk numbers relating to intermittent dockworkers subject to the System of the sticker and carrying on business in about 20 designated seaports or in ports in the electoral district of certain regional health insurance funds. This merger was necessary because the number of intermittent dockers subject to the sticker regime has been steadily decreasing since the 1992 reform, which allowed the largest part of the dockers to be distributed monthly. Also, the calculation of the rates of occupational accidents and occupational diseases is artificial since some of the twenty ports listed, some of them have very few intermittent dockers or even not at all. Art. D. 242-6-15 of the above code provides that the pricing is calculated by port or by a set of ports. This wording is no longer adapted to the proposed new pricing scheme which will no longer be carried out by port. At the same time, the single premium rate will be the maximum rate prescribed by the regulations, already applied by certain ports. In the absence of this deadline, the rate of some ports would be much higher. Ports that have a low rate will not be penalized as they currently do not have intermittent dockers subject to the sticker regime. These amendments are provided for in s. 1 of this Order. Effective 1 January 2003.
