The tools on this page are designed to help you work out what type of licence you need, and also to check whether your equipment meets the required New Zealand standards.
What to look for when you're buying a product
When you’re buying an electrical or electronic product in New Zealand, make sure it has a compliance mark on it. If it doesn’t, don’t buy it. Using a product that isn’t compliant could mean you cause interference to other services.
Buying overseas or online
Electrical, electronics and radio/wireless products can cause interference to the radio spectrum in New Zealand. To minimise this, all products — including those bought overseas or online — must comply with standards and have compliance labels.
