Notices which appear in the Tasmanian Government Gazette
are not available on Tasmania's legislation web site and even if published in newspapers when made, are generally not easy to access over time.
From time to time, the Chief Veterinary Officer or Minister may publish notices in the Government Gazette which have important implications for persons involved with animals and animal materials. To make these notices more available to the public, some of the more important notices are placed on this web site.
