The Environmental Protection Authority is in charge of
considering applications for marine consents for New Zealand’s Exclusive
Economic Zone, or EEZ.
Usually people need to apply for marine consents to do
things related to the oil, gas and mineral industries.
People also have to
notify us about other types of work in the EEZ that does not require a marine
consent, such as scientific research, seismic surveying and laying submarine cables.
This page lets you access information about current
applications for marine consents, and notifications of other work in the EEZ.
