The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) require all wool samples entering New Zealand to be accommpanied by a completed declaration form; and a copy of NZWTA's "Permit to Import". These should be attached to the outside of the package and available for inspection. When sending samples to NZWTA for inspection or testing please use the following procedure:
1. Clearly address the samples to:-
New Zealand Wool Testing Authority Ltd
Corner Bridge & Lever Streets
Attention: Phil Cranswick
2. All Samples are to be clearly marked:
"NOT TO BE FUMIGATED".
3. Attach to the package a copy of the completed declaration. (Note that where samples have been scoured the method of scouring must be stated for the samples to be released). Click Here for a copy of the declaration form.
4. Attached a copy of the "Permit to Import Animal Products" to the outside of the consignment. Conformance with the above procedures will minimise the risk of delaying the delivery of the sample to NZWTA, and consequently the risk of delay in testing or availability for inspection.
