It was proposed that the development of a repository for information pertaining to incendiary devices would be beneficial for forensic FI. This initiated the data gathering process required for the set up and population of the fields proposed for the database. Subsequently the Australian Institute of Forensic Fire Investigation (AIFFI) is developing such a tool, the Incendiary Device Database (IDD), and this poster outlines the progress of the database to date.
