As well as monitoring export goods, we're also charged with encouraging New Zealand's international trade.
We work closely with other countries' Customs agencies to facilitate the movement of trade goods internationally.
As an exporter, you're in a position to benefit from the numerous preferential trade agreements and export schemes which New Zealand has negotiated internationally over the years, and which are designed to promote the export of our goods.
In this section you can learn more about these international agreements and Customs' role in the export sector. You can also access all the information, guidance and documentation you will need in your important role as a New Zealand exporter. We also have useful information on Brexit and what it means for New Zealand businesses.
