Web Standards

The New Zealand Emission Trading Register (the Register) and information pages have been designed to be as accessible as possible for everyone regardless of ability.

The sites aim to comply as far as is practicable with the following standards and guidelines:

  • New Zealand Government Web Standards – version 2.0
  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0

The Register is built to optimally display with commonly used browsers, operating systems and page resolutions; on a PC or Mac, and for people with dial-up as well as broadband connections.

Adjusting text size on your page

The Register and information screen have been designed to display correctly when the text size is increased.

  • To increase or decrease the text size use the menu options in your preferred browser.

Help with PDFs and reports

The Register and information pages provide information in guides and reports in portable document file (PDF) format. PDF files can be:

  • Downloaded on your computer: To save a PDF file, right click on the document link and choose ‘Save target as’ from the menu that appears.
  • Viewed online in your web browsers: Click on the link to open and read the document online.
  • Printed: Right-click on the document link and choose ‘Print target as’ from the menu that appears.

PDF readers

You need a PDF reader to view a PDF file online. There are a number of PDF readers you can use: a common one is Adobe Reader, which is available free of charge from the Adobe website.

Reading and navigating a PDF

When you open a PDF, you’ll see options on the toolbar and menu that enable you to use the document more efficiently. In Adobe Reader these include:

  • Search for keywords: Press the ‘F’ key while holding down Ctrl. A panel will open to enable you to search the document for a keyword.
  • Scroll quickly through the pages: Click the arrow symbols on the toolbar to move back and forth through the pages.

PDF accessibility

The latest versions of Adobe Reader include features that make it easier for people with disabilities to read PDF files. To set these up go to Edit>Accessibility>Set up

PDF troubleshooting

PDF failed to open: If you click on a PDF and see a blank page instead of it opening correctly, it is likely to be that you are using an older web browser that incompatible with the PDF. To get around this problem, save the file to your computer then double click on the saved file. It should now open correctly. (To save a PDF file, right click on the document link and choose ‘Save target as’ from the menu that appears.)

PDF took too long to open: PDF sizes are displayed next to the download links. File sizes in megabytes (mb) are large and may take longer to download, especially if you have a slow internet connection.
