It is possible to operate a brothel in most parts of New Zealand.
People who have run businesses in other industries may not appreciate the particular issues that arise, relating to sex work.
There can be unforeseen hurdles in hiring people to work with you and meeting legal obligations. If you are considering starting a brothel, or you work with sex workers in your job, NZPC can provide valuable information.
We have compiled resources which help brothel operators achieve best practice, and can direct you to important statutory information about certification and occupational health and safety.
NZPC has more than three decades of expertise in the sex industry, and are committed to maintaining constructive relationships with operators throughout New Zealand
