Paying fees

Fees must be paid to register or vary the registration of products in Australia, to cover the costs of registration assessment and compliance monitoring.

The fee will be paid as part of applying to register a product (or vary a registration) in the Energy Rating Product Registration System. Surcharges apply to payments, which are supplied by the Reserve Bank of Australia.

Do you need to register multiple models as part of your application?

Registration fees are the same for a single model or family of models application, saving you money.
