Have your say on Greyhounds Australasia’s Rule changes

Greyhounds Australasia (GA) will introduce a set of Rule changes around animal welfare and administered substances, effective from 1 March.

GRV has been advised that the amendments will update and clarify GA’s Rules and in certain instances will bring GA’s Rules in line with other racing codes.

Before it considers the adoption of these rules in Victoria, Greyhound Racing Victoria is seeking comment from Victorian participants about GA’s amendments by 16 February.

The amendments relate to the following GA Rules:

GA Rule changes

GAR 1 – Definition of Prohibited Substances

GAR 1 – Norethisterone exemption

GAR 83A – Restrictions on Treatment Prior to Racing

GAR 79A – Out of Competition Testing

GAR 21A – National Ban on Consecutive Days Racing

GAR 84A – Treatment Record Requirements

Please email your submissions on the proposed amendments to GRV at

Specific questions seeking clarification about the rule changes or their meaning should be emailed to Greyhound Australasia
