GEMS Registration

Australia & New Zealand Energy Efficiency GEMS Registration

Applicable Products

All household equipment. 


On 1 October 2012, the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Act 2012 came into effect, creating a national framework for product energy efficiency in Australia. The GEMS Regulator replaced the previous state regulators, and is the sole party responsible for administering the legislation in Australia.

The legal instruments that set out the GEMS requirements are the:

Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 (GEMS Act)
GEMS (Registration Fees) Act 2012
GEMS Regulation 2012 (GEMS Regulations)
GEMS Registration Fees Instrument
GEMS (Authorisation Requirements for Testing GEMS Products) Instrument 2013

GEMS (Fees for GEMS Regulator Services) Instrument

The specific requirements for each product regulated under the GEMS Act—including Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) and Energy Rating Labelling (ERL) requirements—are set out in a further legislative instrument specific to that product type called a GEMS Determination.         

The Australian Government has released the Final Report of the Independent Review of the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 (GEMS Act).

The review is a statutory requirement to ensure the GEMS Act remains appropriate and effective in reducing Australia’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Ms Anna Collyer, a partner at law firm Allens, was appointed to undertake the review.       


Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) specify the minimum level of energy performance that appliances, lighting and electrical equipment (products) must meet or exceed before they can be offered for sale or used for commercial purposes.

MEPS are mandatory for a range of products in Australia and New Zealand. These products must be registered through an online register and meet a number of legal requirements before they can be sold in either of these countries.
