In New Zealand, Flare Outdoor Fireplaces can be run in any region and comply with clean air regulations. This is because they are essentially a wood-fired BBQ, which like pizza ovens and smokers, are not a problem.

Following this link will take you to the NZ Fire & Emergency Webpage. It works well and gives you the answers you need.

Select Pizza Ovens & Chimenea from the options provided, and away you go.

Any questions, just yell out.
