DOC Approved label.
Label displayed by businesses approved to operate in public conservation areas. Terms and conditions of use apply

The DOC Approved label symbolises the significant contribution tourism and recreation businesses make to conservation in New Zealand.

The label shows the value of your business to DOC and illustrates to visitors that your business pays fees to DOC to support conservation.

You can also point out that you have passed the environmental standards set by DOC, as well as safety standards set by an independent auditor, and been approved to operate in public conservation areas.

The DOC Approved label can only be used by businesses with a current legal agreement with DOC.

All permit holders may use the DOC Approved logo. Email to obtain an electronic version of the logo.
