Fatal Facts is a publication produced by the NCIS that contains case summaries and coronial recommendations for cases closed in a particular timeframe. Fatal Facts is publicly available and is intended as a way to share information about the outcomes of coronial investigations in Australia and New Zealand.

The NCIS also maintains Fatal Facts Search which contains the case summaries and coronial recommendations from all previous editions of Fatal Facts. Fatal Facts Search is an electronic database of case summaries and recommendations and can be used to search for cases within a particular category. For example, if you are interested in cases where the deceased died as a result of a work-related incident, you can check the “Work Related” tick box in Fatal Facts Search and it will return cases categorised as work-related from all editions of Fatal Facts.
