A NZ Recreational Code of practice began being developed as a joint initiative between Water Safety New Zealand (WSNZ) and the New Zealand Canyoning Guides (NZCG).
The Code of practice is designed to be a distillation of the common sense approach to safe canyoning in NZ, with regard to where to go, how to canyon and what to bring.
Work on the code has currently stalled, but a draft code of practice is available for download
An Activity Specific Guideline for Canyoning has been created for commercial canyoning in NZ. It’s a big document, but contains useful information for all canyoners.
