Border and Certification Sector

As 2020 has clearly demonstrated, managing the flow of people, goods and services  across New Zealand’s border is key to maintaining our high standard of living, a resilient economy and the wellbeing of our society as a whole.

Our people have many years’ experience delivering successful certification systems across New Zealand’s agricultural and horticultural industries. This provides credibility that products, services and management systems comply with the strictest standard requirements and meet customer expectations.

We work to improve systems and processes that underpin robust border management to better manage the flow of visitors and immigration into New Zealand. Our people also work alongside biosecurity regulators to stop the importation of potentially harmful biohazards into New Zealand that could put our primary export market at risk.

Our projects include;

  • Travel Declaration
  • Employers Assist (Immigration New Zealand)
  • Electronic Visa System (Electronic Travel Authority)
  • Seeds Varietal Certification for exports and imports
  • Electronic Certification for:
    • Animal Products and Seafood exports
    • Dairy exports
    • Phyto (plants) exports and imports
    • Wine exports and imports
  • Business case for the redevelopment of MPI’s legacy eCert systems
  • Verification Monitoring
