EQC considers the six-year limitation period to start from the date when an individual claim is or was settled or declined under the EQC Act, as was originally stated in December 2015.
 
It is from this point that the six-year time limit for bringing legal proceedings against EQC commences and not from the date of when an earthquake event occurred.

This means that the limitation period will vary from claim to claim.
