Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS)

Let's win the trust of the final consumers by implementing the Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) mark on your product as it is an obligatory requirement to enter the Australian market. Contact us and know how to obtain MEPS Certification.

What is MEPS?

Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) refers to a specification which includes various performance requirements applicable on the electric equipment, lighting, and appliances for energy efficiency. 

Meeting MEPS is obligatory for a wider product range in Australia and New Zealand. Thus,  electric equipment, lighting, and appliances need to be registered and meet the established requirements to sell or distribute in either of the countries.

What is an Energy Rating Label (ERL)?

ERL indicates the energy performance information to the consumers during the sale of the product which are regulated by the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Act, 2012. 

In a nutshell, like BEE certification in India, ERL allows the customers to compare different products (having same or different models) depending on the star rating of a product. 

Before moving forward, let’s understand - what is GEMS? 

GEMS Act, 2012 is a national framework which has been created with the motive to ensure energy efficiency in Australia. It has replaced the earlier state regulators and is solely responsible to administer the legislation in Australia.

Why is MEPS Essential?

One of the foremost importance of Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) lies in the fact that it ensures that a product is energy efficient through specifying a minimum efficient energy level. This is done, to prevent the entrance of inefficient products in the market.

To be noted, MEPS are the established standards which are applicable on a product, however, it also includes a Energy Rating Label (ERL) which serves as a proof that a certain product has met Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS).
