Each of the States and Territories around Australia have
a licence agreement with the Victorian Department of Justice that permits the transfer of coronial information for
storage and dissemination via the NCIS.
Data entry is performed at each of the coroners' offices into
local case management systems by coronial clerks. Data from
these case management systems is uploaded to the NCIS on a
regular basis (in most cases nightly). Full text documents are
either attached to the local case management systems by the
coroners courts, or transferred directly to the NCIS from the
originating organisation (eg. Post-mortem reports from the
Forensic Science Centre).
The coroners' clerks use the information contained within the
coronial file as the basis for their data entry.
All information transferred to the NCIS is performed in
accordance with State and Federal Privacy legislation.
