The Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Check Testing Selection Criteria are those considered by the GEMS Regulator when determining which models of GEMS products (models) will be selected for check testing.

Models will be selected using an intelligence led, risk based approach. The objectives of this approach are:

  • to identify models with a higher than average risk of failure to meet GEMS level requirements relating to minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) or energy performance claims;

  • to identify models with the greatest potential impact on energy use and greenhouse gas production; and,

  • to check test as many of these models as possible.
