Trans-Tasman Charter for Pill Testing

The Yarra Drug and Health Forum are a signatory of the Trans-Tasman Charter for Pill Testing, established by Pill Testing Australia in 2019.

This Trans-Tasman Charter represents an agreement between all the signatories on a unified approach to working collaboratively to expand and develop best practice pill testing services in Australia and New Zealand, which are compatible with best practice standards across the world.

About the Founding Organisations

Harm Reduction Australia, the Australian Drug Observatory (based at the Australian National University) the Noffs Foundation, the DanceWize program (of Harm Reduction Victoria), and Students for Sensible Drug Policy Australia are focused on the introduction of health-based pill testing services in Australia and delivered the first officially sanctioned pill testing program in Australia.

The New Zealand Drug Foundation supports drug checking services in New Zealand at festivals and advocates for law change to enable fixed location and one-off event checking as well as greater legal protection for clients.
