About RCAi and the Responsible Camper Accreditation Programme.
Responsible Campers Association Inc (RCAi) have been active in the Responsible Freedom Camping arena since January 2017.
We surveyed Territorial Authorities and asked for feedback on Responsible Freedom Camping. Rather than just sit on this information we sought solutions to the many problems that were identified and to that end spoke to many Councils, Stakeholders, members of RCAi, and others in order to seek simple solutions.
Any person can hold themselves out to be an issuing authority under NZS;5465(Self Containment certification for Motor caravans). In recent years we have seen a large increase in persons, businesses and organizations holding themselves out as Issuing Authorities. There is no overseeing governing body. The effect of this is a system which has now become a total shambles.
