The Department of Natural Resources and Environment invite you to have your say on the Draft Racing Regulation Integrity Bill.
The draft legislation incorporates recommendations from the Monteith Review, which involved a review of the Racing Regulation Act 2004 and the racing integrity model in Tasmania.
The draft Bill includes the creation of a Tasmanian Racing Integrity Commissioner, which will have powers to set integrity and animal welfare standards. There is a requirement that this office include staff with experience in animal welfare policy and regulation.
The Tasmanian Racing Integrity Commissioner will be accountable through an annual report to the Minister for Racing on the performance of their functions and exercise of their powers.
Under the draft Bill, Tasracing will become operationally responsible for all three codes of racing, including pre-race day and race day management, Stewards, and daily animal welfare.
