Regulatory Impact Statement: Minimum Energy Performance Standards for Air Conditioners 2003

Category: Space Heating and Cooling

Date: 25/08/2003

This regulatory impact statement (2003/08) was prepared by Syneca Consulting and released on the 25th of August, 2003.

It proposed changes to minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for airconditioners falling within the scope of the joint Australian New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 3823.

These are airconditioners of the refrigerative type with a cooling capacity of up to 65kW. They may be configured for cooling only or with a reverse cycle capability to provide both cooling and heating services.

The revised Standard will be given legal effect under State and Territory legislation.
