The Tasmanian Cancer Registry (TCR) is responsible for collecting, collating and reporting incidence of all malignant neoplasms in Tasmanian residents. By law, cancer registration is required in all Australian States and Territories to assist State and National efforts to understand the causes of cancer, to plan health services and assist prevention efforts and treatment decisions.
The Tasmanian Cancer Registry is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, Tasmania.
The Director of the Registry is Professor Alison Venn.

Data Release Policy
The data collected by the Tasmanian Cancer Registry are used by the Department of Health and Human Services and by national and international agencies reporting cancer statistics.
Identified data may be released to scientific researchers after approval of a formal application submitted to the Tasmanian Cancer Registry, the Human Research Ethics Committee (Tasmania) Network, the researcher's institutional ethics committee, and with subsequent approval by the Director of Public Health.
Non-identifying data are available on request. Data are supplied as tables or graphs of incidence and mortality and/or number of cases and deaths for specific years, age groups, regional areas or cancer subgroups. These requests come from researchers, medical practitioners, government departments, students and the community.
