Hi , we got our new caravan yesterday ,complete with blue self containment sticker ,but no certificate or window card (both of these i neglected to ask about at the time ,assumed they would be in our large info pack we got ). . I assume it was done by the selling agent so ,question 1. should i still be issued with a certificate ,like you get from when a nzmca officer does it .Quest 2 , Does the caravan HAVE to have a self containment cert done by the nzmca to use the nzmca parks ? i will query this tomorrow with the agent but a bit of forward knowledge would be good ,Regards,Andy .

https://www.nzmca.org.nz/certified-self-containment/ has a lot of relevant information. Especially
A self-containment certificate,displayed warrant card, and blue responsible camper sticker demonstrate compliance with the minimum requirements of the Standard. Under the Standard, it is a requirement for a vehicle to display the warrant card and provide the certificate on request, in order to remain certified. Displaying the blue responsible camper sticker does not verify certification
(My bold) implies the blue sticker is a pretty picture and it not required to be CSC, although I would not push things on that front and you would be courting a fine you would then need to get off.
The NZMCA will only accept a self-containment certificate issued by another issuing authority if the document has been completed correctly and the vehicle clearly satisfies the full requirements of NZS 5465:2001.
Therefore they will recognize CSC issues by other organizations provided they are happy its legitimate.
