The Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Check Testing Policy outlines the principles used by the GEMS Regulator to verify, through laboratory testing, whether models of GEMS products (models) meet relevant GEMS level requirements and the energy efficiency claims of manufacturers and suppliers.
Under the GEMS Act (the Act), the GEMS Regulator (the Regulator) may suspend or cancel a model’s registration for a variety of reasons.
This means that the model is no longer registered under the Act against the relevant determination and cannot be lawfully supplied.
When this happens, the registrant must take all reasonable steps to ensure that any person the registrant is aware might supply products of the models covered by the registration is informed of the suspension or cancellation.
This report, covering the period between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2017, presents the results of market surveillance of models of eight GEMS products required to display an Energy Rating Label (ERL) when supplied.
