Notice is hereby given of the making of an order amending the Tariff of New Zealand, pursuant to section 9 of the Tariff Act 1988, to increase transparency of the tariff treatment of the goods covered by the World Trade Organization Information Technology Agreement.
1. Title of order—The order is the Tariff (World Trade Organization Information Technology Agreement) Amendment Order 2017.
