The discussion paper was produced following a series of grading seminars conducted by GRNSW with participants, administrators and industry groups across the state.
Feedback from the seminars found that a full rewrite of the current grading policy was unnecessary and that industry concerns could be addressed through amendments to the existing policy.
The discussion paper focuses on 11 areas of the TAB grading policy including 5th grade qualification, preference orders, the point score system and the drawing of reserves.
