NSW Animal Welfare Reform – issues paper
What's this about?
This is your opportunity to help set the direction for animal welfare policy reform. This is an important step towards modernising welfare laws, which is a key commitment of the NSW Animal Welfare Action Plan.
The discussion paper identifies five focus areas for reform:
- reviewing the purpose of the Acts
- defining key terms
- examining compliance powers and tools
- setting the right penalties
- streamlining the framework.
Feedback from the paper will be used to develop policy solutions. DPI welcomes feedback from all community members on these focus areas and any other issues that should be considered in the reform process.
