The Resource Management Act (RMA) sets mandatory timeframes for a number of processes carried out under the legislation, to ensure that the planning processes are efficient and avoid unnecessary delay. These timeframes are measured in ‘working days’, which are defined as weekdays excluding specified public holidays and excluding an extended period over Christmas. The RMA calendar applies the working days to the current calendar year to provide a convenient way of calculating the timeframes for particular RMA processes.

It’s a leap year so we all get one extra day!

We hope you find it useful.


We have been certified to ISO14064, which means we’re aligned with an internationally recognised standard. By being Toitū certified we are going beyond simply measuring, we are ensuring a third party is checking our data and progress. Being a part of Toitū’s carbon program means we are actively taking steps to mitigate climate change.

As we return to normal following the Covid years we have seen an increase in our carbon emissions, especially around our domestic travel as cancelled conferences were able to start taking place again. We also found more of our staff were returning to the office rather than working from home.

Mitchell Heaven and Lisa Watson work collectively to gather all our data. Everything from measuring our waste to keeping on track with reducing our electricity usage. Small changes that we can make will have a wider impact overall.

We look forward to seeing where our Toitū journey takes us next and doing our part in taking action and helping Aotearoa meet its climate goals!
