Australia-New Zealand Counter-Terrorism Committee

Home Affairs
Formerly the "National Counter-Terrorism Committee", the Australia-New Zealand Counter-Terrorism Committee (ANZCTC) was established following the agreement to invite New Zealand to move from observers to members of the Committee. The Committee's name was changed to reflect the change in membership. The Committee is a high level body comprised of representatives from the Australian Government, Australian state and territory governments and the New Zealand Government. The objectives of the ANZCTC are to contribute to the security of Australia and New Zealand through: - maintaining the National Counter-Terrorism Plan and associated documentation; - providing expert strategic and policy advice to heads of government and other relevant ministers; - coordinating an effective nation-wide counter-terrorism capability; - maintaining effective arrangements for the sharing of relevant intelligence and information between all relevant agencies and jurisdictions; and - providing advice in relation to the administration of the special fund to maintain and develop the nation-wide capability, administered by the Australian Government on the basis of advice from the ANZCTC.
