The Australian National University Act 1946 establishes the Council as the governing authority of the University. The Interim Council dates from 1 August 1946 to 30 June 1951. From 1 July 1951 the term Council was used. Its membership was provided for by section 11 of the Act including members elected by the Senate, the House of Representatives, the Governor-General, Convocation, students and staff and co-opted members. It is chaired by the Chancellor and the Vice-Chancellor is also a member. Amendments to the Act in 1960 increased its members to include the Pro-Chancellor, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, the Principal of the School of General Studies, and the Deputy Chairman of the Board of the Institute of Advanced Studies.

Scope and content
These are the published Annual Reports presented to the Commonwealth Parliament beginning with those of the Interim Council (1946–1951) and from 1 July 1951 those of the Council. There have been some changes in format: the reports up to 1962 are in foolscap size and for the period 1982–1986 the reports were issued in two volumes (the second containing the financial reports). In 1995-1996 a Research Report was included and for 1997-1999 there is a separate Annual Review.
