Is there a National body established that has formalised safety standards for the use of fresh water, open canoes in New Zealand. MSA advise they do not have the mandate and due to the deaths in the S.Island the Canoeing Associations were lobbying with local government.

Please advise what stage this is at and who is dealing with who as I am on the Whanganui River By laws working party and we are currently looking at the transfer or delegation of powers for control and enforcement.

Appreciate your help as I work for an iwi organisation and we have designed a River Guide training course with the NZQA pilot to be run in September specific to the Whanganui River.
