Customs Edition

From July 2017, the Customs edition will cease as a publication.

The last Customs edition will be published on Tuesday 27 June 2017.

Amendments and withdrawals of concessions that require gazetting will be published in the principal edition of the New Zealand Gazette on Thursdays.

All gazette notices are freely available online, and paid subscriptions for the main edition and supplements are available for those who require a hard copy. Go to the About Us page for more information on subscriptions.

All tariff notices under the Tariff Act 1988 can be found by searching for “Tariff Act” under the Advanced Search on the homepage, or clicking here for results (external link) . To set up an RSS feed for these results, click on the link at the bottom of the results page.

Revised Gazette Fees

Following a recent review of fees and an increase in cost recovery that was required due to inflationary pressures, a change to fees will take effect on 1 February 2016.

The New Zealand Gazette is required to be funded on a full cost-recovery basis through subscriptions and fees for submitting notices. These have remained unchanged since 2006.

There have been many service improvements to the Gazette with online publishing providing greater accessibility and improved search capability. The Gazette Office is continuing to work on future service improvements for submitters and users of the online Gazette.

The fees adjustment includes an increase to the per word rate and the late fee, and a new fee structure for large notices and supplements.

There is no change to the cost of subscriptions or to the cancellation fee.

A summary of the changes is outlined below:

  Previous Fee Revised Fee
Fees $0.50 per word $0.68 per word to a maximum of 5,000 words
Notices above 5,000 words incur a $3,400 fixed fee which covers 5 hours processing time. An hourly rate of $140 per hour is charged for the processing time over 5 hours
Plus printing and delivery costs (if required)
Supplement set-up fee No current charge $140
Late fee Additional $0.05 per word 20% surcharge
Cancellation fee $55 No change
Subscriptions (annual) From $4 to $261 per year depending on subscription type No change
