The Ministerial Council for Police and Emergency Management - Police (MCPEMP) is the principal forum for the development of national firearms policy.
The MCPEMP comprises the Federal Minister for Home Affairs, the New Zealand Minister for Police, and the Police Ministers of each State and Territory of Australia.
Officials of the Australian and State and Territory governments meet biannually under the auspices of the MCPEMP to support the development of nationally consistent policy responses to firearms-related issues.
The Attorney-General's Department (AGD) is responsible for providing the Australian Government with national and international perspectives on firearms policy and for coordinating the development of nationally consistent firearms policy within Australia's Federal constitutional arrangements through the MCPEMP.
