The NZIPI are currently accepting applications for membership!
Membership of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Investigators (NZIPI) is open to all individuals who are engaged as professional investigators from various industry sectors, not just licensed private investigators.
Please Note: There is no corporate or company NZIPI membership available, only individual NZIPI membership.
NZIPI will not promote any one entity or investigator and will at all time remain unbiased. Our rules are specific as to the criteria for NZIPI membership:
The NZIPI is a professional institute for licensed private investigators and other individuals who are engaged in a full-time occupational capacity as a “Professional Investigator” and individuals who can demonstrate to the executive committee they have a “current and continuing interest” in investigations.
Being engaged in or having experience in occupations that do not require PSPLA (New Zealand Ministry of Justice) licensing, typically such as process serving, tracing, debt collection and repossessions are not a sufficient threshold for membership of the NZIPI.
Some of our members offer a unique service, e.g. Information Logistics www.infolog.co.nz which is a subscriber only service that searches the phone numbers of classified advertisers in most newspapers and other publications.
Our rules can be found by searching the Register of Incorporated Societies: http://www.business.govt.nz/companies/app/ui/pages/companies/otherSearch
