This application form is for use by suppliers or commercial users of a model who wish to apply for an exemption from one or more requirements of a GEMS determination under section 37 of the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 (Cth) (GEMS Act).
Please note that exemption applications usually take at least one month to process from the time we have received all relevant information from you. If an exemption is granted by the GEMS Regulator, you will still be required to register your product and you may incur any associated registration fees.
In 2016, the Australian Government is conducting a review of the fees charged under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Act 2012, to meet the expectation that they would be reviewed every three years to facilitate a move towards full cost recovery over time.
An Issues Paper has been developed to guide stakeholders in framing their views around the issues to be considered under the Fees Review.
