Suppliers, including manufacturers and importers, of swimming pool and spa pool pumps need to ensure applicable pumps meet the mandatory energy efficiency requirements that start on 1 October 2022.

The requirements are established under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 and the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Swimming Pool Pump units) Determination 2021 (the Determination).

The requirements introduce:

Suppliers, including manufacturers or importers, of pumps for spa and swimming pools, prefabricated or not, must register relevant pumps for sale in Australia by 1 October 2022.

From this date, pool pumps that don’t meet the minimum energy performance standard cannot be sold unless they were imported or manufactured in Australia before 1 October 2022. In this case, stock can be sold until exhausted.

Suppliers of swimming pool and spa pool pumps need to make sure applicable pumps meet the mandatory energy efficiency requirements that start on 1 October 2022.

This checklist will help suppliers determine what they need to do to meet the new requirements.

Suppliers of swimming pool and spa pool pumps need to comply with new requirements under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 and the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Swimming Pool Pump-units) Determination 2021.

The Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Regulator takes a risk-based approach to compliance. Our objective is to maximise the number of suppliers who voluntarily comply with the Act, while implementing strategies and responses to identify, and then deter, non-compliance.

On 1 October 2022, suppliers of swimming pool and spa pool pumps will need to comply with new requirements under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 and the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Swimming Pool Pump-units) Determination 2021 (the Determination).

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.

Suppliers must provide and display the Energy Rating Label on swimming pool and spa pool pumps covered under the new requirements from 1 October 2022.

The Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Swimming Pool Pump-units) Determination 2021 (the Determination) provide details about the pump label and icon. This includes how and when to use them, and their format.

Suppliers may remember participating in the Voluntary Energy Rating Labelling Program (VERLP) for Swimming Pool Pump-units. This program has ended, and voluntary labels cannot be displayed after 31 March 2023.

Pool pumps must now meet new requirements under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Swimming Pool Pump-units) Determination 2021 (the Determination).

The scope and method for calculating minimum energy performance standards and energy star ratings have changed since the VERLP.
