MPI Covid19 update

Wednesday 1 Apr 2020

MPI - For those in the wood process and manufacturing supply chain which have been identified as an essential service, as part of the food and beverage supply chain and are still operating please see further guidance on:

> Guidance for staff health and safety at Alert Level 4
> Hygiene requirements for primary processing industries with work station distances between 1 and 2 metres
> Please note if you have any staff with English as a second language, translations of these key documents can be found at

It is important that you follow these protocols in order to keep yourselves and your staff safe. Everyone has a role to play in stopping the spread of COVID-19.

Please note by now you should have registered on the MPI website and received an acknowledgement and a registration number.

To overcome some technical issues, which means not everyone is receiving the email, we have created a series of emails groups for sub-sectors within forestry. This will help to ensure you are kept up to date on the COVID-19 situation and what it means for your business.

If you see that an organisation is not included in this email, please let us know by emailing providing the name of the business and their contact details. We will ensure that they are in an email list, rather than you forwarding the email to them.

To reduce the burden on New Zealand’s network capacity I ask that you only reply to this email if you have any relevant information to provide. Thank you for your cooperation.

The following can also be used to contact MPI Customer Enquiries Centre: or phone 0800 00 83 33
