In New Zealand, the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand (RIANZ) compiles the top 40 albums chart each Monday. Over-the-counter sales of both physical and digital formats make up the data. Certifications are awarded for the number of shipments to retailers.[1] Gold certifications are awarded after 7,500 sales, and platinum certifications after 15,000.[2]

The first chart of 2012 was issued on 2 January, with the final chart for the year to be published for 31 December.

Twenty-five different albums have topped the chart, including three by New Zealand artists. 21 by Adele has spent twelve non-consecutive weeks at number one. White Rabbit: The Very Best Of by Peter Posa has been the best-performing album by a New Zealand artist, reigning the chart for six weeks.
