Lighting - Updated Policy Proposals

Started 13 Sep 2017 16:15 AAEST
Ends 12 Oct 2017 17:00 AAEDT

A supplementary consultation paper updating policy positions for lighting has been released. This document provides an overview of the feedback received on the Lighting Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (CRIS) released in November 2016, updates policy positions where required, and provides a basis for further consultation with industry, community and other stakeholders. It provides more technical detail on some proposals outlined in the CRIS.

This position paper should be considered in conjunction with the CRIS and not as a standalone document. It covers where the CRIS proposals have been modified, are not recommended to proceed or where additional input or information is sought.

Any feedback on this document will inform preparation of the Decision RIS (DRIS). The DRIS will be submitted to the Council of Australian Governments’ (COAGs) Energy Council and the New Zealand Government to decide whether to implement any of the policy proposals and update and introduce new energy efficiency regulations for lighting products. The DRIS is expected to be considered by Energy Ministers at the November 2017 meeting.
