Consultation is now open on the Australian Government’s review of fees charged to registrants under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Act 2012.

The review is considering the appropriate level of cost recovery in providing GEMS registration and compliance monitoring and enforcement activities. It’s also examining the actual fee revenue and costs in delivering the GEMS scheme to date, and whether the model used to establish the registration fees and fee bands remains appropriate.

Registrants, stakeholders of the E3 Program and interested members of the public are invited to provide their views on the issues set out in a consultation paper, by 14 March 2017.

See the Energy Rating website for more information on the consultation process.
