Application Process

Your application will be acknowledged by reply email, within three working days of your submission – if you do not receive this please contact farmdairyeffluent@irrigationnz.co.nz or phone (03) 341 2225.

An electronic invoice will then be issued. Your application fee must be paid up front. Your application will start being processed as soon as payment is made.

To ensure robust outcomes, three panel members will assess your application (a separate panel member for each design and the QA system).

During the assessment process you may be contacted and asked to clarify or provide additional information.

A decision will be made within three months of the assessment starting date. You will be advised by email and a formal letter. Successful applicants will receive a certificate of accreditation and can also request FDES logos for use from farmdairyeffluent@irrigationnz.co.nz.
