New Zealand’s Cadastral Survey Rules 2021 (CSR 2021) came into effect on Monday, 30 August 2021, setting the standards on how cadastral surveyors define and describe land boundaries.

There will now be a six-month transition period to 25 February 2022, during which field work can be undertaken and CSDs certified and lodged under either the old Rules for Cadastral Survey 2010 or the CSR 2021.
