What you need to do
From 1 October you’ll need to use new forms, which have minor design changes, for all inspections carried out after this date (apart from rechecks, see note below).
Waka Kotahi compliance visits after 1 October will check the right forms or labels are being used.
Returning old stock
You can return all old stock (including part books) to Blue Star for a full refund by ordering a prepaid courier bag on the Blue Star portal.
- Check sheets aren't changing and you don't need to return them.
- Please remove and retain used carbon copy pages of Certification and WoF/CoF books before returning part books.
Grace period for rechecks
If you inspected a vehicle before 1 October and the customer comes back for a recheck after 1 October, you can use the old label or form to complete the inspection process.
If the customer doesn't come back for a recheck within the prescribed timeframe and has to pay for a new inspection after 1 October, you'll need to use a new form.
If you want to know more about why we're making these changes, visit the Waka Kotahi website.
