In March 2008, Judge Gordon Lewis was commissioned to consult with racing industry controlling bodies and stakeholders under agreed terms of reference, with the objective of identifying options to ensure that integrity assurance within the industry was of the highest standard.
Over a period of three months, Judge Lewis met with representatives from the major racing codes, police, media, government, industry associations and committees, appellate bodies, veterinary groups, individuals and wagering companies.
The report contained 63 individual recommendations grouped under the following headings:
- criminal activity in the racing industry
- internal integrity structures of the Victorian codes
- cooperation on integrity issues – racing integrity commissioner
- disciplinary and appeals processes
- swabbing and drug testing
- other integrity matters
Following the release of the Report, a joint Government-Victorian racing industry Implementation Working Party was established to analyse the Report's recommendations and advise on the progress of their implementation.
