ready National Coronial Information System


General Information
The National Coronial Information System (NCIS) is a secure database of information on deaths reported to a coroner in Australia and New Zealand. The NCIS contains data on almost 400,000 cases, investigated by a coroner. Data includes demographic information on the deceased, contextual details on the nature of the fatality and searchable medico-legal case reports including the coronial finding, autopsy and toxicology report and police notification of death. The database is available to coroners to assist investigations and access is available on application (subject to ethics approval processes) for research projects.
