Background

Information
You are invited to have your say about pregnancy testing of cattle by laypersons and ovarian ultrasound scanning by lay research technicians.

Key issues raised in this Regulatory Impact Statement include whether changes authorising lay persons to conduct these procedures would:

●        support the agricultural sector’s viability in an increasingly competitive international and domestic market;

●        support the integrity of cattle pregnancy testing and scientific research results;

●        be administered in a way that supports positive animal welfare outcomes;

●        be achieved in a way that imposes the lowest possible regulatory burden.

We have prepared a short survey to help us understand your views. It should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
