This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 December 2008, amend the Wine Regulations 2006.
The amendments provide a further exemption from the requirement for winemakers to have a registered wine standards management plan.
The exemption is for very small winemakers, being winemakers who, during a specified 2-year period, produce not more than 20 000 litres of wine and do not sell the wine for export from New Zealand.
Date of notification in Gazette: 24 April 2008.
These regulations are administered by the New Zealand Food Safety Authority.
