New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) has a requirement to replace its current Products. The Product range covers insect repellents, sunscreens, lip balm, camouflage face paint and a massage cream, all of which protect NZDF personnel in the harshest of conditions.

The Products are used in all environments where personnel are serving with environmental conditions ranging from -10 °C to plus 40 °C, and humidity up to 95%. It is essential that the formulation of the Products remain stable and useable in those environments.

NZDF wishes to contract with a Supplier/s to provide Products with effective performance, ensuring compliance to relevant Standards and applicable New Zealand regulations but also best practice recommendations.
