Farm Dairy Effluent System Design Accreditation Programme

The Farm Dairy Effluent System Design Accreditation programme provides a new way forward for Effluent System Design in NZ. The programme goal is to ensure all NZ dairy farmers have effluent systems that can achieve dairy industry and wider communities expectations for the land application of dairy effluent –

  • To keep all untreated effluent out of surface and groundwater.
  • To keep land applied effluent nutrients in the root zone to capture their nutrient and economic value.
  • To ensure all systems are compliant 365 days a year.

This website provides a register of accredited organisations. Accredited organisations have had their design skills and work place systems assessed by an independent assessment panel and have met the accreditation standard. They have also signed an agreement stating all their designs, from the date of accreditation, will be consistent with the Farm Dairy Effluent Design Code of Practice and Standards.
