The ACC commenced operations on 1 January 2003. It has its origins in the April 2002 Leaders Summit which agreed that a new national framework was needed to meet the challenges of combating terrorism and multi-jurisdictional crime. The ACC replaced the National Crime Authority, the Australian Bureau of Criminal Intelligence and the Office of Strategic Crime Assessments to become Australia’s national criminal intelligence and investigation agency.
