The Department has prepared Preliminary Indicator Evidence Reports (PIERs) for each of these occupations.  These reports draw together statistical data about the occupation around three indicators – skill levels, scale of the occupation and evidence of shortage.  On the basis of this information, the Department has formed a preliminary view on the status of the occupation.  This view is expressed on the front page of the PIER. 

The PIERs are available on the Department’s website http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/general/generalinformation/review.htm . Refer to the link given under ‘3 Publication of the Preliminary Indicator Evidence Reports (PIERs)’.

The Department is now seeking input from industry stakeholders on the preliminary view of the status of the occupation made in the PIERs. 

Organisations whose Expression of Interest has been accepted should now provide a full submission to support their proposal for change (by 5pm 20 July 2012).

Submissions are also invited from any organisation on any of the occupations identified for review (by 5pm 20 July 2012).

The submission form is available at: http://www.immigration.govt.nz/migrant/general/generalinformation/review.htm . Refer to the link given under ‘4. Call for submissions in occupations selected for review’.

The consultation process (including any follow up with stakeholders on matters contained in submissions) will be completed by 30 July 2012.  Final decisions will be published on the Department of Labour website in December 2012.
