The amendments will make it easier for the GEMS Regulator to administer the legislation and easier for suppliers to comply with its requirements. The amendments, while minor, will support the achievement of the objects of the Act by giving flexibility to help more energy efficient products be available in the Australian market. These amendments would:
- reduce unnecessary administrative burden for both the GEMS Regulator and suppliers;
- streamline processes for those regulated by the Act;
- increase flexibility to reduce regulatory burden for business; and
- reduce suppliers’ need to seek exemptions from requirements.
