What’s this about?

The Greyhound Racing Act 2017 has resulted in significant changes in the greyhound racing industry.

This includes:

  • 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. 

This review is to ensure the Act is appropriate to uphold high standards of animal welfare and supports the economic sustainability of the greyhound racing industry and governing bodies. 

The review is mandatory under the Act. It does not include consideration of a greyhound racing ban.
