Australasian Critical Communications Forum

Australasian Critical Communications Forum

The Australasian Critical Communications Forum (ACCF), a not-for-profit membership organization is the regional chapter of The Critical Communications Association (TCCA).

The ACCF represents industry and users from around the Australasian/Oceania region bringing together all those with an interest in advancing the quality of standardized critical LMR and broadband communications and benefits from TCCA’s representation in key industry and government organizations and its involvement in critical industry initiatives around the globe.

Our Members design, manufacture, build, implement, utilize, analyze, promote, develop and deploy standardized critical communications solutions.


The ACCF benefits from TCCA’s International Partnerships and Collaborations with standardization bodies  ETSI, 3GPP and others in the development of critical digital LMR and Broadband LTE/5G technologies and beyond.

And the organization provides a gateway to a thriving community of regional and organizations globally that are committed to the evolution of ecosystems that support standardized critical communications for professional users. This creates a thriving communications ecosystem for the benefit of all that ensures delivery of secure and reliable critical communications for a global market, now and in the future.
