We’ve set out our expectations for managing PECPR (pressure equipment, cranes and passenger ropeways) equipment under the COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic light system).

Our expectations

We expect businesses and services to comply with all relevant regulatory requirements at all levels of the traffic light system. This includes any requirements for certification.

Certifiers, equipment inspectors, and inspection bodies can operate at any level if they can do so safely. They must comply with all relevant requirements of the traffic light system.

Businesses with expiring certificates

If you are operating under any level of the traffic light model, you must take all practicable steps to ensure that a certificate or licence is renewed.

Under some restrictions it may be difficult for some businesses to obtain a certificate or licence due to the availability of certifiers, equipment inspectors, and inspection bodies.

If you are having problems getting necessary certificates for pressure equipment, cranes, and passenger ropeways because of traffic light settings let us know at:technicall@worksafe.govt.nz
