To book an inspection, contact can be made directly with the inspector, as Zespri does not conduct or arrange inspections.  

There is a list of Inspectors and their contact details below.

  • When you contact the Inspector, they will want to know activities you need to be inspected for - for example, Harvester, Vine Maintenance, Nutrient Management or AgriChemical Management (or a combination of any of these). 

  • The Inspector will be able to give you a quote for your required inspections. The cost may vary depending on your location or the size of your operation. It is your responsibility to agree this directly with your inspector. 

  • Once you have contacted the Inspector and confirmed you are ready for your inspection, they will make a time with you to visit your operation and complete your first inspection. 

  • Your Inspector will answer any questions you have about the inspection process.  

  • If you already have a CAV, it has an expiry date.  CAVs are valid for 12 months from the date they are issued. An inspection must be completed annually in order to obtain a valid CAV.  

  • You must book your inspection well before your CAV expires.  You cannot complete any work on a kiwifruit orchard unless you hold a valid CAV, with a current date.
