The portal to complete your declaration is available here. You will need to ensure it is completed by someone with appropriate authority to act on behalf of your business. Once you sign up to the Ts&Cs, they apply to your business immediately.

All spray diaries must be submitted to SWNZ electronically either through GrapeLink or another approved electronic spray diary programme that is compatible with GrapeLink. If you are using a different electronic spray diary programme, it must integrate with GrapeLink so that your spray diary data can be automatically sent to GrapeLink for compliance processing.
If you are applying to certify a new vineyard, winery, bottling facility or brand with SWNZ, or if you are renewing your SWNZ membership, you must consent to these Ts&Cs. Any member that does not consent to these Ts&Cs will not be able to gain certification for the 2022/2023 season.
This document has been created to clarify how the SWNZ programme operates. It confirms what we expect from SWNZ members as well as what SWNZ members can expect from NZW under the programme. It is also important to demonstrate the integrity of the programme.
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.
If you have any other questions you can contact the SWNZ team. NZW will also be hosting a webinar to answer questions about the Ts&Cs in May 2022.
