Terms of Reference for the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements

A national Royal Commission into Australia’s devastating Black Summer bushfires has established an agreement from the Governor-General, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd).

The Morrison Government has released the Terms of Reference for the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements, informed by feedback from states and territories.  

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the scale of the Black Summer bushfires presented new challenges for all levels of government, which required a detailed national inquiry.

The Prime Minister has written to all State Premiers inviting them to issue concurrent commissions under their respective legal frameworks for Royal Commissions.
