Code Support Line
The objective of GRV is to support participants to better understand their obligations and responsibilities under the Victorian Government Code of Practice for Keeping of Racing Greyhounds. To that end, we have established a Code Support Line.
If you have questions on the Support Book or the Code of Practice, call the number and leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

FAQ: Everything Code
Please find below frequently asked questions relating to Code of Practice, EHMP (Establishment Health Management Plan), Vets and the Code of Practice as well as the Greyhound Record.
No, however you must keep it at your establishment and present it to an Authorised Officer when requested.
As the Person in Charge (PIC), you must keep a copy of your approved EHMP at your property, to be made available on request.
It’s similar to an eHealth record on FastTrack which will record all health care and veterinary treatments given to a greyhound during its life.
To record health “events” for the greyhound. Examples of health events include: if the greyhound gets an injury or illness for which they then receive treatment; or if the greyhound is given vaccinations, supplements, or worm treatments.
All greyhounds on FastTrack have already had a Greyhound Record automatically created for them.
If you submit a kennel return for an interstate greyhound, a Greyhound Record will automatically be created for the greyhound on FastTrack. This should be used while the greyhound is resident in Victoria.
Only the person who has completed a Kennel Return and has the greyhound located in their kennel, (the Person in Charge), will have access to the Greyhound Record.
No. You can use any form of paper or electronic record, as long as you capture the information required.
There is no edit, upload or delete capability.
If you have health event-related paperwork for a greyhound, you should keep copies, and remember to pass a copy on to whoever will be the next Person in Charge of the greyhound.
Information about any health events or treatments should be passed to the Person in Charge of the greyhound (who does have access to the Greyhound Record), so that they can enter and save these events to the Greyhound Record.
