The NCIS is a voluntary data sharing collaboration between coroners courts from each Australian state and territory and New Zealand. It is unique at both a national and international level.
Information contained on the NCIS is prepared by, and belongs to, the respective coroners court from each of these jurisdictions.
The NCIS core data set was agreed upon by all participating jurisdictions at the establishment of the NCIS. The NCIS Unit monitors the provision of information from coroners courts against the core data set.
