Date new versions published                                                          November 2016


New expiry date                                                                                   31 December 2017




Delays in trainees commencing programmes leading to the New Zealand Certificate in Retail (Level 2) [Ref: 2234] and the New Zealand Certificate in Distribution (Level 3) [Ref: 2572], have made it impossible for trainees to complete these qualifications within the set duration.  The expiry date of these unit standards has consequently been extended to December 2017 to ensure that trainees and programme providers are not disadvantaged by these delays.


Main changes


The expiry date for these unit standards has been extended from 31 December 2016 to 31 December 2017.
