On 15 October 2018 the NZ Transport Agency announced an extensive review of more than 850 open compliance files. We also announced that we are taking a tougher approach to enforcement and strengthening our regulatory functions.
All 850 compliance files have now been reviewed. These urgent files relate to potentially serious non-compliance safety issues where an individual or operator may not be following the rules and their responsibilities as set out in legislation.
We cast a wide net to review files covering all regulatory areas for which the Transport Agency is responsible. This includes Warrant of Fitness (WoF) and Certificate of Fitness (CoF) providers, Transport Service Licences, heavy vehicle driver licensing, course providers and Heavy Vehicle Certification.
