The Energy Efficiency Regulations prescribe minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) consumer and commercial energy-using products. They also prescribe labelling requirements for certain products to disclose and compare the energy use of a given product model relative to others in their category. The Regulations are amended regularly to introduce MEPS for new products and update existing MEPS. This proposed amendment to the Energy Efficiency Regulations, 2016 would: 1. introduce minimum energy performance standards, labelling and reporting requirements for 6 new product categories; 2. introduce more stringent minimum energy performance for 11 currently regulated product categories; 3. make minor changes to existing standards, test procedures or reporting requirements for currently regulated product categories; and 4. provide flexibility for testing requirements and remove import reporting requirements for certain product subcategories.
