NZWTA Wool Testing are committed to adding value to the wool clip nationally. We have proudly been part of the New Zealand wool industry for over 50 years and have worked with international partners and customers from right across the globe.
The NZWTA lab can provide IWTO Test Certificates and Reports on greasy and scoured wool from international sources, and Test Reports on tops and sliver. All testing is performed to IWTO standards. The range of wool certification and testing parameters include: Micron, Yield, Length and Strength, Colour, and Bulk. We also provide fleece testing services for international customers who wish to test individual animals.
The NZWTA Wool Testing team can assist in the import and measurement of samples from any region of the globe. Our simple process for sending wool samples to NZWTA is set out below. If you require additional information or support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: The “MPIPS 0007” section on the address label is our code with the national quarantine facility (the Ministry for Primary Industries) to ensure samples can be sent directly to us without the need for irradiation. NZWTA Wool Testing is an approved transitional facility for importing wool and other animal products. We have systems set up in the lab to ensure all imported samples are registered and separated from local samples within the laboratory.
Where there are multiple boxes, the samples will be treated as one consignment. However it is useful to label each box as a series in case they get separated (e.g. “Box 1 of 3”, “Box 2 of 3” etc).
Note: You will need to complete each declaration form. The declaration includes your company name, country of origin, wool type, country of scouring (if applicable) and signature. You do not need to sign or write anything on the Import Permit.
We recommend using FedEx or DHL as they have offices in New Zealand.
