Myst Enterprise, a leader in innovative sourcing solutions based in New Zealand, was approached by motorhome manufacturers facing stringent new regulatory requirements for self-contained vehicles. The legislation required significant changes to the design and functionality of cassette toilets, among other self-containment features.


The revised regulations mandated that all cassette toilets must directly drain into a removable blackwater tank and be integrated within a fixed toilet base. These changes necessitated a redesign of existing models, which posed a supply chain challenge to source compliant components quickly and efficiently. Manufacturers needed to ensure compliance without disrupting production lines or incurring excessive costs.

The Solution

Strategic Approach: Myst Enterprise developed a dual-focused strategy:

  1. Compliance-driven Redesign: Collaborated with manufacturers to understand the specific requirements and constraints of the new regulations. Assisted in redesigning the toilet systems to meet legislative demands while maintaining usability and cost-effectiveness.
  2. Global Sourcing for Compliance: Utilized its global network to identify and partner with suppliers who could provide innovative, regulation-compliant components. This included sourcing removable blackwater tanks that were easy to install and matched the existing vehicle designs.


  • Supplier Coordination: Worked closely with suppliers to ensure components met both the regulatory standards and the manufacturers' quality specifications.
  • Logistics Optimization: Streamlined the logistics to ensure timely delivery of new components to avoid production delays.
  • Compliance Assurance: Conducted thorough compliance checks before installation to ensure all sourced components met the new legal standards.


  • Regulatory Compliance: All client vehicles equipped with the new systems successfully passing certification under the new regulations.
  • Production Continuity: Manufacturers maintained continuous production flow with minimal disruption, thanks to the proactive sourcing and redesign strategies.
  • Innovation in Design: The newly designed toilet systems not only complied with regulations but also enhanced the overall design and functionality of the vehicles.
