End of Daylight Saving Time reminder

Skip to main content.


IPONZ website services will undergo an extended maintenance period between 7:00pm on Friday, 16 November and 6:00am on Monday, 19 November NZDT. The IPONZ case management facility will not be available during this time. We apologise for the inconvenience.


End of Daylight Saving Time reminder

Daylight Saving Time (NZDT) ends on the first Sunday of April in New Zealand. Clocks will be set back one hour on Sunday, 3 April 2016 when 3:00am becomes 2:00am. 

Our website and online case management facility at www.iponz.govt.nz will remain available throughout this period.

New Zealand Standard Time will apply to all applications filed or changed on or after 3.00am on 3 April 2016. As tasks due on a Sunday do not abandon until the end of Monday, and applications submitted with us on Sunday will receive Monday as the filing date, we do not anticipate any issues for clients as a result of this time change.
