We know that secure international supply chains are vital to New Zealand's export-driven economy. To that end Customs has been instrumental in developing the Secure Exports Scheme (SES).
The SES is designed to give New Zealand exporters greater certainty at international borders by minimising Customs delays and by giving exporters priority in trade recovery situations.
The scheme is a voluntary agreement between Customs and exporters. It is open to all regardless of what you export and the methods that you use to export.
The purpose of the scheme is to protect your exports from being tampered with, sabotaged, smuggled, or subjected to other trans-national crimes.
