Immediate Rule Change

By Office @PHAA | Friday, October 23, 2015

Rule 111. Genetic Testing

Current rule 111. "(d) All hair samples for testing are to be submitted to the Australian Equine Genetics Research Laboratory (AERGC) or any other organisation that the PHAA designates."

Amended rule 111. "(d) All hair samples for testing are to be submitted to the Australian Equine Genetics Research Centre (AEGRC) through the PHAA or any other organisation that the PHAA designates. Any sample submitted for DNA testing to the PHAA and subsequently the AEGRC and the resulting DNA profile remain the property of the PHAA."

Explanation: This change has been brought about by the AERGC who requested the clarification be made. They are responsible to the organization who requested the DNA profile not the owner of the horse from which the DNA sample was taken.
