Document for comment

On 13 September 2017, a Lighting – Updated policy positions document was released for stakeholder comment. This document provides an overview on the feedback received on the Lighting Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (CRIS) , updates policy positions, and provides a basis for further consultation with industry, community and other stakeholders. It also provides more technical detail on some proposals outlined in the CRIS.

Feedback on this document will inform preparation of the Decision RIS (DRIS). The DRIS will be submitted to the Council of Australian Governments’ (COAG’s) Energy Council and the New Zealand Government to decide whether to implement 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 end of the year.
