Infringement Notices start on Monday


Dear Customer,


Plese see below received from New Zealand Customs.


We begin enforcement of Infringement Notices, which were introduced as part of the Customs and Excise Act 2018 from Monday.

Customs officers can issue Infringement Notices, with an instant fine of $400 for an individual or $800 for a business.
Infringement Notices enable Customs to manage minor offending involving travel, goods and craft by issuing fines for 70 offences.
They are issued for minor offences that justify more than a warning, as an alternative to prosecution. Once the fine has been paid, all guilt or liability disappears.

To issue an Infringement Notice a Customs officer needs to have reasonable grounds to believe an offence has been committed. A warning notice may be issued instead, if appropriate.
