The official findings of two interstate pill testing reports will be key to any "realistic" opportunity of Tasmania trialing its own initiative over the summer festival period.
This, according to Tasmania's Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs Council, who say they have no reason to believe the government won't reconsider its position, in light of new evidence.
It comes after the leaked recommendations from the NSW deputy state coroner proposed "best practice" drug checks be made available at music festivals, following an inquest into six mainland deaths.
ATDCT chief executive Alison Lai said the Tasmanian government had made assurances it was open to reviewing new evidence.
"The two key pieces that we're waiting on is the [non-leaked] recommendations from the NSW coroner and also the independent review of the ACT second trial," she said. "Once we have that information, the ATDC will meet with the government again to discuss.
"The timing of the release of these reports will be key to whether there's realistically any opportunity to have a genuine discussion about a potential trial in Tasmania over the coming festival period."
Health and Wellbeing Minister Jeremy Rockliff said the government's focus remained reducing the use of drugs through preventative initiatives as to "reduce harm right across the community".
"We are always happy to meet, engage and listen to views - as we did with Pill Testing Australia in September," he said.
"However, at this stage we are not convinced and our position remains the same - there is no safe use of any illicit drug."
In August a pill testing motion put forward by Montgomery Independent MLC Ruth Forrest failed to gain support in the upper house.
However, Ms Forrest said she intended to re-table the motion pending the release of the NSW coronial recommendations, due to be officially handed down on November 8.
