2021 Christmas and New Year’s deadlines

New Zealand’s major broadcasters have started releasing their material deadlines for the upcoming Christmas and New Year’s holiday season. Note that there are differences between the networks so please take extra care.

CAB will be closing at 5pm on Thursday 23 December and open again on Monday 10 January 2022. We will have an ‘on-call’ service to deal with any urgent matters on the days when the office is officially closed.

All requests on these days should be sent to advice@commercialapprovals.co.nz.
