Self Containment Officers
The NZMCA has over 300 volunteer self containment officers nationwide who are qualified to inspect vehicles against NZS5465:2001.
These officers are members of the association who volunteer their time to help inspect members' vehicles and promote responsible motor caravanning through certified self containment.
Along with vehicle inspections, the officers are available to assist members with any queries relating to vehicle certification against the Standard. Non-members are also welcome to contact an NZMCA officer for inspection services however there will be a charge of $55.00 for the processing of details and issuance of the warrant and certificate. In contacting our self containment officers please observe reasonable hours preferably between 8:30AM to 8PM.
Please note, as this is a volunteer service we ask that you arrange a convenient time with the officer and if possible take your vehicle to them as any travelling by the officer may be on-charged to the member. Some officers may inspect vehicles under their plumbing license and so may charge members a nominal fee for the inspection during their working hours in addition to the NZMCA fee of $55.00. It therefore pays to check with the officer first if there is a fee.
