Due to the extraordinary impact of the coronavirus (Covid 19) pandemic on our members, the New Zealand Audit Bureau of Circulations Inc has decided to cancel both the 31 March 2020 and 30 September 2020 scheduled audits.

At a time when the public are relying more than ever on trusted news sources all our members efforts are directed towards to ensuring efficient production and distribution of our newspapers. Especially when more than 75% of our paid daily and weekly titles are home delivered.

The New Zealand Audit Bureau of Circulations Inc. expects the next published newspaper audit results to be for the twelve -month period to 31 March 2021.
