After an inquest, a coroner may make recommendations that relate to public health and safety to help prevent similar deaths in the future.

The NCIS aims to provide public access to Australian coronial recommendations.

Fatal Facts Search

Fatal Facts Search is a tool to help you find coronial recommendations.

You can search for cases since 2000 by jurisdiction, year and category. The database currently contains cases up to 2014.

The NCIS continues to make coronial recommendations available to the public.


Fatal Facts editions

Coronial Recommendations: Fatal Facts contains summaries to cases with coronial recommendations made by an Australian State or Territory Coroner within a three-month period.

New Zealand cases are not included from edition 37 onwards. New Zealand coronial recommendations are published by Coronial Services of New Zealand.
