Does your registration require renewal?

Did you know that the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Act 2012 (GEMS Act) is now over five years old? So what, you ask? Well, product registrations last for five years. This means many registrations may have recently expired, or will soon expire.

The GEMS Act states a GEMS product in a product class covered by a GEMS Determination cannot be supplied, offered for supply or used for commercial purposes if it is not registered, except if the product is second-hand or if the model is exempt under section 30 from registration.

If you have a registration approaching five years old, please check that the contact and notification information within your Applicant ID is correct. This ensures that you will receive the reminder emails that are sent out six months before your registration expires.

If your registration is expiring in the next six months, you can renew it at any time. A renewal adds an additional five years to the original expiry date. If your registration has already expired and you are continuing to supply the product, you will need to start a new application.

If you are having difficulty renewing or re-registering your product, please complete this form and the Energy Rating Team will assist you.
