What are MPI requirements?
The CRMS is a requirement for all vessels arriving into New Zealand. It was introduced to manage the biosecurity risks associated with vessel biofouling. The standard aims to reduce vessel biofouling by requiring vessels to take preventative measures and maintain a clean hull before they arrive into New Zealand or Australia.
How do i meet the CRMS for vessel biofouling?
Compliance with the upcoming CRMS can be achieved in several ways, including:
  • Cleaning the vessel hull less than 30 days before arrival in New Zealand or within 24 hours of arrival using an MPI-approved provider (you must have proof of a cleaning facility being booked within 24 hours of arrival) –
Recommended for long-stay vessels.
  • Doing continual maintenance using best practice
Recommended for short-stay vessels.
  • Applying MPI-approved treatments to the hull.
Vessels that cannot meet the requirements using the methods outlined above may develop a Craft Risk Management Plan to be approved by MPI.
