This document outlines the processes relating to the Australian MEPS and Energy Labelling Regulation including Design of the Overall Program, Test Capacity, Preparation and Publication of a Regulatory Proposal for a Product, Design and Implementation of MEPS for a Product, Label Development for a Product, Review and Evaluation.
This regulatory impact statement (2003/08) was prepared by Syneca Consulting and released on the 25th of August, 2003.
It proposed changes to minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for airconditioners falling within the scope of the joint Australian New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 3823.
These are airconditioners of the refrigerative type with a cooling capacity of up to 65kW. They may be configured for cooling only or with a reverse cycle capability to provide both cooling and heating services.
This report has been commissioned by the Australian Greenhouse Office as part of the National Appliance and Equipment Energy Efficiency Program (NAEEEP). Its purpose is to explore the potential for energy and greenhouse savings through the introduction in Australia of Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) for electric lamps.This report describes the major types of electric lamp currently used in Australia and their characteristics.
