Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Air Conditioners up to 65kW) Determination 2019

Last updated: 22 August 2019
The Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Air Conditioners up to 65kW) Determination 2019 (the Determination) updates energy labelling and product performance testing requirements for air conditioners up to 65 kilowatts rated capacity.


This Determination revokes and replaces the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps) Determination 2013 (revoked Determination).


The Determination introduces a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) standard for energy efficiency rating purposes and a re-designed Energy Rating Label. For the vast majority of air conditioners covered by the Determination, the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) levels will not change. MEPS levels are also referred to in the Determination as greenhouse and energy minimum standards (GEMS) level requirements.
