Dear Ms Grey
Your official information request for copies of all tests and test results for 1080 poison or any 1080 residue in the last 10 years that you posted on the FYI website on 28 February has recently come to our attention.
The Official Information Act 1982 requires that we advise you of our decision on your request no later than 20 working days after the day we received your request. Unfortunately, it will not be possible to meet that time limit and we are therefore writing to notify you of an extension of the time to make our decision to 26 April.
This extension is necessary because, due to availability of key staff members, consultations required to make a decision on your request are such that a proper response cannot reasonably be made within the original time limit.
You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision. Information about how to make a complaint is available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz or freephone 0800 802 602.

Dear Ms Grey
I refer to your official information request for copies of all tests and test results for 1080 poison or any 1080 residue in the last 10 years that was posted on the FYI website on 28 February and for which we sought an extension of the time limit for reply to 26 April.
This information is not available on any public database but we can provide you with the attached summary of all our Toxicology Laboratory’s test results for the January 2009 to April 2019 period. This report covers testing of the items listed in your request.
You also asked if it was possible for us to provide information on who requested each test and the general location and purpose or circumstances of the tests. In view of the large volume of tests conducted by the Toxicology Laboratory, providing this information or further details concerning tests and results would be likely to involve substantial collation or research and may attract a charge.
All of the tests shown in the summary apart from those on honey, plants, gravel, air and GFA filters are accredited with IANZ under NZS ISO/IEC 17025. All water and tissue samples are also accredited under the Ministry for Primary Industries Recognised Laboratory Programme (RLP).
Yours sincerely
