About the Inquiry

The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Inquiry on Bushfire Mitigation and Management was announced by the Prime Minister on 10 October 2003.

The Inquiry's Terms of Reference focussed on issues related to bushfire mitigation and management that are of national significance and on opportunities for enhanced cooperation and the adoption of national best practice. The Inquiry took account of the work and findings of other bushfire inquiries.

The Inquiry reported to the Prime Minister as the Chair of COAG on 2 April 2004 and copies of the report were provided to each COAG member. The report remained under embargo while COAG considered the report and developed an agreed response. The report and COAG's response were released on 24 January 2005. The Prime Minister's media release is available.
