Certified self-containment is maintaining and certifying your motor caravan or caravan in accordance with the New Zealand Standard for Self-Containment of Motor Caravans and Caravans, NZS 5465:2001.
The NZMCA encourages all motor caravan or caravan owners (including 5th Wheelers, caravans, campervans, motorhomes, RVs & buses), to certify their vehicles in accordance with NZS 5465, helping protect the environment and public health from indiscriminate waste disposal.
Wastewater is then safely disposed of in approved dump stations, which can be found in most camping-grounds and public areas.
Please avoid the use of non-biodegradable chemicals as they will adversely affect the operation of sewerage networks including biological systems.
Under the Standard, it is a requirement for a vehicle to display the warrant card and provide the certificate on request, in order to remain certified.
Displaying the blue responsible camper sticker does not verify certification
