Fisheries Communications Centre (FCC) : Hours of Operation
19 March 2013
The FCC is only staffed from 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Friday. FCC is not staffed on New Zealand statutory holidays.
Notification / application periods are specified in legislation. However, for those permit holders seeking monitored unloads it is recommended that you provide at least one full business days notice of your port arrival so that this can be facilitated.
Failure to do so may result in vessels having to wait several days before unloading. This means that notification after 5pm on a Friday would not be actioned until after 8:30am on a Monday.
If you have any queries regarding this matter, please contact Gary Orr, Manager : Operational Coordination on (04) 5704982 / email@example.com.
