Changes to appointment terms for new inspecting organisation applicants

Waka Kotahi is setting a defined appointment term for all new warrant of fitness (WoF) and certificate of fitness (CoF) inspecting organisations (IOs) that apply from 1 January 2021. This will not apply to any applications currently being processed or received before 1 January 2021.

This decision brings these IO appointments in line with other IO authorities Waka Kotahi appoint, particularly within the following sectors: heavy vehicle specialist IOs, border IO and used light entry inspection and certification IOs.

Waka Kotahi anticipates providing appointments for a term between three to five years, depending on our degree of confidence in the applicant.

This is also outlined on the WoF IO and CoF IO application pages as well as the IO applications landing page.
