 Of interest, it's now impossible to import radio transmitting apparatus into NZ without a dealers registration number from RSM! Will be seized at the border.

So does this mean I shouldn't bring my handhelds with me when I come for a visit??

Not sure what you mean? No prob if type approved in the UK.

Bring your operators certificate too.

No idea but it's all to do with importing "prohibited" equipment, that is transceivers that can operate beyond their intended specification. If it type approved, no problem. If not, you need a RSM registered dealer to import it for you and of course be legally allowed to have it in your possession so a appropriate qualification. Getting caught with a boefeng on marine channels is not a good idea.

It will have a "CE" of some sort on it. If its a purpose built transceiver for the maritime service it will not be a problem. You might get asked to produce proof that you passed some exam on its use like you need in the UK, a operators certificate but I doubt they will bother. Customs are currently only concerned with monitoring the import of non type approved equipment. New regs that came out last year here.
