Under new smoke-free legislation, sellers of tobacco must not allow any tobacco product, package or carton to be visible to the public from 23 July 2012. This is likely to require modifications both to the way tobacco products are stored in retail premises, and also to the way tobacco products are handled by staff when making tobacco sales.

The rules for access to the Motor Vehicle Register (MVR) changed on 1 May 2011, introducing greater controls on the use of information obtained from the register. The Ministry of Transport has approved a class authorisation for service stations to get access to the register.
With fuel prices on the rise, service stations often experience an increased number of drive away thefts or incidents of customers not able to pay for fuel. It is important to know how to deal with these different situations or even better, how to prevent them from occurring.
As a result of the 2010 service station forum series, MTA have commissioned a basic modelling tool to help you make decisions about your fuel tank ownership arrangements or retanking your sites.
The Ministry of Economic Development (MED) provides data on oil and fuel prices, available as both downloadable charts and data tables.
Service Station members are often faced with the decision of what to do when their tanks get too old, or their supply agreement comes to an end and they are forced to remove or replace their fuel tanks. There are also growing numbers of operators buying existing tanks already in the ground from their suppliers.
