2021 Residential Energy Baseline Study: Australia and New Zealand

Air conditioners, including multi-split systems, covered by the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Air Conditioners up to 65kW) Determination 2019 and Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Air Conditioners above 65kW) Determination 2022, must be registered before they can be supplied or sold within Australia.

Multi-split air conditioning systems are defined as having:

  • separate indoor and outdoor parts, or ‘units’ that are connected with refrigerant piping
  • two or more indoor units, each of which can be individually controlled.

From 1 October 2022, retailers will be required to display the Energy Rating Label on swimming pool and spa pool pumps covered by 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 (GEMS) Compliance Monitoring Program outlines the GEMS Regulator's compliance monitoring focus for 2022-2023.

From 1 October 2022, most swimming pool and spa pool pumps will need to meet minimum energy efficiency performance requirements and display an Energy Rating Label when being supplied.

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

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.
