All coronial inquests and fire inquiries are sound recorded. Official court transcripts, which are written records of the court proceedings are made from these recordings.
An official court transcript is important not only for the family and friends of the deceased, but because the coronial finding may be reviewed by public authorities who have a role to play in preventing similar deaths.
It takes approximately three(3) months from the hearing for the transcript to be processed.
To order a transcript, you may send a written request, or use the
Application for access to coronial documents form.
The fees for transcripts are listed on the
Application for access to coronial documents, and are set by Schedule 1 of the Civil Procedure Regulation 2012.
Please send the form or written request by email, fax or post. Payment must be received before the request can be processed.
Copyright of the transcript is owned by the State. Transcripts cannot be photocopied or used in any other way.
