The first phase of New Zealand Petroleum & Minerals (NZP&M) new Online Permitting System has been launched today.
The Online Permitting System, which replaces the current permit management system, offers a more-user friendly experience for industry, permit holders and the public.
“As part of the Government's wider ICT strategy to provide business services and information via digital channels, NZP&M's new online system is designed to make permit management processes more efficient and easier for permit holders and applicants,” NZP&M General Manager James Stevenson-Wallace says.
“It will also provide real-time data to allow us to better manage permit processing times, while allowing permit holders to better access information regarding their permit obligations and compliance.”
The first phase includes:
- an improved public permit search tool on the NZP&M website which is simpler and easier to use; including the option to search for permits by region, sort permits and applications by date and download search results;
- all NZP&M staff begin working in the new system.
In the coming weeks NZP&M will roll out the final phase of the system which will allow applicants to apply for permits and permit holders to manage changes to permits online.
