About our national Certification & Recertification Team

Fall protection and abseil safety systems (inculding PPE) in New Zealand require recertification in accordance with AS/NZS 1891.4:2009 standards, manufactures requirements and best practice guidelines.

PBI has recertification technicians located in Timaru, Christchurch, Wellington, New Plymouth, Turangi, Hamilton and Auckland that are able to recertify fall protection/abseil safety systems.


3M Fall Protection installed Anchors and Proprietary systems require annual recertification In accordance with AS/NZS standards.
Only 3M Fall Protection trained and accredited persons can issue certification on 3M/Capital Safety installed products; otherwise the certification is deemed invalid and in turn invalidates the warranty.

Individual inspection certificates will be issued on completion of the annual re-certification or alternatively a detailed report will be issued to advise of the corrective actions required to meet AS/NZS standards.
