New Zealand Treaties Online
New Zealand Treaties Online provides an official record of New Zealand’s binding legal obligations at international law. The database allows access to accurate and up to date information. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, as the New Zealand repository of all treaties, is responsible for maintaining records of treaties to which New Zealand is party or to which New Zealand is in the process of becoming party.
Searching the Website
The website provides information about treaties that New Zealand is party to, as well as ‘treaties in progress’ which are currently under negotiation or awaiting ratification. The quick search bar on the homepage allows you to search by title. For a more advanced search the ‘Search’ page allows you to access information about parties to treaties, New Zealand’s adherence status and the particular treaty status. Search results can be ordered by title, type, date concluded, or NZ’s adherence status to find specific results.
Collate and Download PDF Reports
You are able to collate and download a tailored PDF list of treaty records by selecting the box on the left hand side of a treaty entry or entries and then selecting ‘Download PDF Report’ at the top of the right hand side of the page. To download a larger list of treaty records select ‘show all’ when displaying search results and then select the box in the search header.
