New home for tariff concession notices

Customs no longer advertises tariff concession applications, approvals and declines in the New Zealand Gazette.

Only concession amendments and withdrawals will still be advertised in the Gazette as per the requirements of section 8 of the Tariff Act 1988. From this date, all tariff concession notices will be posted on the Customs website and in Customs Release.

The new tariff concession notices webpage can be found on the Tariff Concession Notices page under 'news and resources' or accessed through the “Tariff Concession Notices” link under “Featured Topics” on the Customs website homepage.

Please note, a new update has been made to the Tariff Concession Approvals, Withdrawals and Declines Notice today (July 14).
