GA Rule changes – consultation extended to 9 March

Victorian participants have been given more time to comment on Greyhound Australasia’s (GA) proposed Rule changes regarding animal welfare and administered substances.

The consultation period has been extended by three weeks to ensure that participants have enough time to consider the rule changes and provide feedback. It will conclude on Friday 9 March.

GA released the proposed amendments last month. Greyhound Racing Victoria is seeking comment from Victorian participants before we consider adopting these rules in Victoria. We are also working with GA to prepare a series of frequently asked questions that will explain the Rule changes in more detail.

You can read about the changes on GRV’s website on the Rules of Racing page at


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
