Minor issue with format of emailed licensing invoices
The Department recently introduced improvements to their licensing application and payments processes to make it easier to apply for a Class 4 licence.
Part of the new process is that they now email invoices to licence applicants on receipt of a completed application. Overall feedback about the new system has been very positive. The Department have, however, become aware that the sender and subject line were missing from the first batch of emailed invoices, resulting in some of the emails not being recognised by the recipient or being blocked by email filters.
The email formatting issue has now been resolved and all the affected clubs and societies have been notified. The Department apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your patience.
Assessment of DIA's status as the gambling regulator
The Department is inviting comments about the assessment of their status as the gambling regulator.
This is part of a wider government programme to improve the quality of regulation in New Zealand. At the link below you will find more information and a high level summary of the Department's conclusions and ratings of four performance areas.
If you wish to provide comments please send them by email to Lizanne.firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business on Monday 22 May 2017.
