Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 15 March 1999, require a person who imports a motor vehicle that is to be registered in New Zealand to pay a fee of $20.00 (inclusive of goods and services tax) before the vehicle is released from the control of Customs. The fee is payable to the Director of the Land Transport Safety Authority, or a person authorised by the Director, in respect of the collection of information about the vehicle while it is in the control of Customs for the purposes of the Vehicle Standards Compliance rule. The regulations exempt 2 classes of person who import a new motor vehicle from payment of the fee. A person who imports a light motor vehicle and has been appointed as a certifier for vehicles of the same make as the vehicle that is imported is not required to pay the fee. A person who imports a heavy motor vehicle and is the manufacturer or manufacturer's representative in New Zealand for the make and class of vehicle that is imported is also not required to pay the fee.

The Director or a person authorised by the Director, has power to waive the fee, provide for a rebate of the fee, or refund the amount of any fee that has been paid, if satisfied that the work actually done to collect the information does not justify payment (or full payment) of the fee, or if there are special circumstances applicable to the particular case.
