Vehicle and machinery systems

You can use an MPI-approved system to make sure the vehicles and machinery you import to New Zealand meet our biosecurity requirements. Learn how to get a system approved or find one that’s already approved.

MPI-approved vehicle and machinery systems 

There are 2 types of MPI-approved system that importers can use to make sure vehicles and machinery meet our requirements in the Vehicles, Machinery and Equipment Import Health Standard (IHS):

New vehicle and machinery systems

If you manufacture new vehicles and machinery, you can apply to the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) for approval of a new vehicle and machinery system.  This recognises your system's management of vehicles or machinery as meeting our biosecurity requirements.

Your system needs to have monitoring and processes that reduce the risk of biosecurity contamination throughout the manufacturing supply chain.

Apply for MPI approval of your system

To apply for approval of your system, complete the application form and send to standards@mpi.govt.nz 

Guidance is available to help you through the application process.

Used vehicle and machinery systems

If you import used vehicles and machinery, you can apply for an MPI-approved used vehicle and machinery system.

Your system may require certain treatments depending on the biosecurity contamination risk of the exporting country and times of the year.

Apply for MPI approval of your system

If you or your organisation want to develop an MPI-approved system for used vehicles and machinery, contact MPI to discuss system requirements:
