Review the policy and procedures for issuing exemptions from compliance with the rules to ensure that safety critical standards are not compromised.
Policies and procedures for exemptions have been reviewed and are being finalised. These will be signed off and implemented by the end of April 2008. MNZ is currently using a dedicated resource to oversee the exemptions process and is providing extra administrative support. Exemptions will be analysed to identify any potential rule amendments and to ensure that safety critical standards are not compromised.
