The GEMS Regulator invites air conditioner retailers and installers to attend a free information session on the new Zoned Energy Rating Label (ZERL).

The ZERL has been introduced under new energy efficiency requirements that enable consumers to make a more energy efficient choice when it comes to picking an air conditioner for their home. It will be mandatory on new models from 1 April 2020.

The ZERL includes more detailed information than the previous energy rating label, so the GEMS Regulator will be running a series of free information sessions around Australia in August and September to educate retailers and installers on the new label.

These sessions will run for approximately two hours and cover why there has been a change to the label, how to read the new label and explain it to customers, the transition arrangements between the old and the new labels, and how retailers should display the label in store including regulated responsibilities. The session will also cover questions that you might expect to get from customers. We are developing a range of free communication materials which will be distributed to session participants.
