The Ts&Cs have been drafted to reflect that SWNZ certification/membership is attached to the property/facility (i.e., it is the winery / vineyard / bottling facility that gains SWNZ certification and is a “SWNZ Member”). While it may be challenging at times, it is important for SWNZ Members to be aware that they may be ultimately responsible for the actions and/or omissions of any employees, contactors or agents they bring onto site. This is not an unusual position (e.g., PCBU’s are responsible for the actions of others in a health and safety context). NZW encourages all SWNZ Members to think carefully about how their contracts are formulated, particularly if the Member is contracting for something that, if not done appropriately, could harm the SWNZ Member’s prospects of SWNZ certification. We note that if a breach was to occur and, following an investigation, it was apparent that the breach was the result of the actions of a contractor, that would be considered by NZW when determining what action to take against the SWNZ Member.
