Vet Permit To Take Effect 1st September
Racing NSW Chief Executive, Peter V'landys AM today announced the implementation of LR82C on 1 September 2015, following Racing NSW and Equine Veterinarians Australia (EVA) recently resuming discussions to resolve issues surrounding the regulation of veterinarians associated with the racing industry. Racing NSW has now finalised a policy document that clarifies a detailed framework of how LR82C will be implemented. "The implementation of the rule will support Racing NSW in ensuring that Racing NSW is utilising the best practice integrity model" said Mr V'landys AM. "Racing NSW is committed to the ongoing consultation with Equine Veterinarians Australia in informing and clarifying rules and protocols that will apply to veterinarians working with racing thoroughbreds," he said. "Veterinarians are committed to ensuring the highest standards of integrity in racing as well as the welfare of horses and we want to continue to work with Racing NSW to ensure these standards are maintained," said Dr Ian Fulton, EVA President. Racing NSW will implement LR82C, effective 1 September 2015 with respect to veterinarians practising with metropolitan racing stables and 1 December 2015 for all other veterinarians practising outside the metropolitan area of NSW.
