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.
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;
