Approved standards

Updated: 30 August 2012

Most vehicles on New Zealand roads come from overseas, as do the standards for their systems, parts and components. Our law draws on standards from Australia, Japan, Europe and the United States.

Through incorporating these different standards in New Zealand transport law, we've ensured that the requirements work to achieve the same safety objectives. Click on the Rule name below to see information about standards incorporated into that Rule.
