Greyhound Racing Act Review

Share your views on the changes in the greyhound racing industry since the Act was introduced in 2017. 

The Greyhound Racing Act 2017 has resulted in significant changes in the greyhound racing industry, including: 

  • higher standards for greyhound welfare 
  • introduction of the Greyhound Welfare and Integrity Commission 
  • enhanced registration of greyhounds, clubs, trial tracks and participants 
  • strengthened offences, penalties and disciplinary powers. 

The review is to ensure the Act is appropriate to uphold high standards of animal welfare and support the economic sustainability of the greyhound racing industry and its governing bodies.    
 
The review is a mandatory requirement of NSW Government under the Act. It does not include consideration of a greyhound racing ban.
