Welcome to NAIT

Infringement fees

Our goal is to get everybody on board with NAIT so that you, your community and New Zealand can reap the benefits of tighter disease control and continued access to export markets.  

The first step in our approach to getting NAIT working for everyone is to work with farmers, educating them on their obligations and helping them to meet them. The information collected by NAIT allows OSPRI to identify people who aren't playing by the rules, so if you aren't doing your bit we will let you know where you’re are falling short and offer a hand to get you back on track.

However sometimes people just don’t want to play by the rules. This jeopardizes the effort put in by other farmers throughout the country, it also breaks the law. If we've spoken to you a number of times and you continue to ignore your NAIT obligations, your case will be escalated to MPI who may seek to recover infringement fees in the first instance. In some cases MPI may take legal action against repeat offenders.
