From 1 October 2022, all new pumps covered by the Determination will need to meet minimum energy performance standards, be registered, and display an Energy Rating Label.

However, suppliers could have existing stock that was imported into or manufactured in Australia before 1 October 2022. The requirements for existing stock covered by the Determination are different to new stock that was imported or manufactured after 1 October 2022.
