Who We Are
The AFS (Australian Forensic Society) was formed in 1971 to bring together scientists, police, criminalists, pathologists, and legal professionals actively involved in the field of forensic science. In 1988, the AFS recognised New Zealand members and changed its name to ANZFSS.
Our main objective is to enhance the quality of forensic science through our global symposiums, as well as organizing branch-specific events and meetings focused on advancing expertise in the field of forensic science. ANZFSS accepts membership from all persons with bona fide interests in forensic science and has a Code of Professional Practice for its members.
