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 forensic science. In 1988 the AFS recognised New Zealand members and became the ANZFSS.

Our objectives are to enhance the quality of forensic science through our international symposium and the events and meetings by each branch about forensic science. The ANZFSS accepts membership from all persons with bona fide interests in forensic science, and has drawn up a Code of Professional Practice for its members.
