GWIC updates / Changes to lifetime owner registrations

The Greyhound Welfare & Integrity Commission is currently contacting NSW industry participants that are shown on our register as holding a lifetime owner registration.

The Greyhound Racing Act 2017 does not allow for ownership registrations to exist on a ‘life-time’ basis. Greyhound owners will need to confirm their interest in remaining in the NSW greyhound racing industry so the Commission can ensure their registration remains valid and their contact details are up to date.

Greyhound owners will be asked to confirm if they want to remain as a registered owner or not by completing an online notification form. This form will need to be completed by Friday 11 December 2020.

Owners that have confirmed they wish to remain registered with the Commission will then be required to renew their registration by 30 June 2021. There is no fee for this renewal and the process is quick and easy.

Those who wish to cancel their registration should let the Commission know by calling 13 49 42. Every effort is being made to contact registered owners directly in writing, by SMS and email.  Registrations will expire on 11 December 2020 for those who do not respond.  If your registration has expired, you can reapply for a registration at any time.

If you have any questions about your owner registration, please contact the Registration and Welfare team on 13 49 42 or by emailing registration@gwic.nsw.gov.au.
