Pill Testing Australia representatives will visit the state over two days from Wednesday to hold discussions regarding a possible trial of the harm-reduction method at a summer festival in the state.
Representatives will visit Tasmania to hold briefings with Premier Will Hodgman, Health Minister Sarah Courtney, Police Minister Michael Ferguson, and Mental Health Minister on Thursday afternoon.
A briefing will be held with members from the state's opposition parties and Health Department representatives on Wednesday.
Pill Testing Australia co-founder Gino Vumbaca said he would provide an explanation on how pill-testing services operated and provide evidence to support a trial in Tasmania.
"For many, using pill testing services will be the first opportunity for them to talk to a health professional about their drug use and in some cases will lead to them deciding not to consume the drug or moderate their behavior to reduce the likelihood of harm," he said.
"Pill-testing services never condones drug use, and it reduces the potential for tragic outcomes and harms for the people taking risks."
Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs Council chief executive Alison Lai said there was not a Tasmanian politician at a pill-testing demonstration provided by the ACT government in April.
The Greens on several occasions have expressed their desire for pill testing to be available at Tasmanian festivals and cultural events.
Labor has been coy on its position, other than to say it would watch developments in other states.
The government does not support a trial.
