Entry Certification

Entry certification is a process that ensures that vehicles imported into New Zealand meet the necessary safety and environmental standards required by New Zealand law. The process involves a detailed inspection of the vehicle to ensure that it meets the necessary compliance standards, including emissions testing, safety standards, and other regulatory requirements.

The entry certification process is carried out by approved inspection companies, who are authorized by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) to carry out vehicle inspections and issue certification. The inspection process involves a detailed examination of the vehicle, including its chassis, bodywork, brakes, steering, suspension, lights, and emissions.

Once the vehicle has passed the entry certification process, it will be issued with a Warrant of Fitness (WoF) or Certificate of Fitness (CoF), depending on the type of vehicle. This certification is a legal requirement for all vehicles on New Zealand roads, and it must be renewed annually or every six months, depending on the age and type of vehicle.

Overall, the entry certification process is an important part of ensuring that all vehicles on New Zealand roads are safe, compliant, and suitable for use. By ensuring that all imported vehicles meet the necessary compliance standards, the entry certification process helps to keep New Zealand roads safe for everyone.
