Historic Access Agreements

Last Updated: Jun 14, 2018 11:32AM NZST

A signed MBIE API Access Agreement is required before an API subscription request will be approved. This ensures that services and information are used appropriately.

The current MBIE API Access Agreement can be found in the terms and conditions article.

Version Changes
June 2018 New clause 4.5 clarifying time restrictions on content from Insolvency Register.
Updated clause 4.8 (old clause 4.7) - three working days to respond to requests for compliance information, instead of "48 hours".
Updated clause 19.1 - assignment of rights to third parties can be made with written consent from MBIE.
Updated formal name of MBIE signatory "The Sovereign in Right of New Zealand acting by and through the Chief Executive of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment".
March 2018 New - 10 working day notice period for changes in the Agreement to come into effect.
Removed previous clause 4.5 preventing use of MBIE content for direct marketing purposes. New Zealand legislation is considered to suitably cover the appropriate use of data, particularly the principles of the Privacy Act and the Unsolicited Electronic Messages Act 2007.
New clause 20 has been added with conditions related to the PPSR API. This is applicable only to consumers of the PPSR replacement that comes into use in 2018. 
December 2015 Updated clause 4.2.
June 2015 First version of "MBIE API Access Agreement" to replace previous "G2B" and "BusinessData" Access Agreements. Content substantially identical to previous agreements, but references to specific G2B and BusinessData platforms was changed to more generically refer to "MBIE APIs".

Below you can find previous agreements, for information purposes only.
