This Week’s Highlight: Greenhouse Standards Testing Services

Initiatives to minimise environmental impact and carbon emissions is on the agenda (in some form or another!) of most company board & executive meetings. Companies are setting targets, producing plans and ensuring their products are compliant with relevant industry standards. With product development, companies are more often than not being required to declare the environmental impact of their product on their labelling and packaging, such as the star ratings marked on various household appliances. So this week we look at an opportunity issued by the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources seeking Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Check Testing Services to verify the claims made by various companies.

The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources is the Australian GEMS Regulator and responsible for administering the legislation and ensuring compliance.  All states and territories (except the Northern Territory) support this national scheme through the Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) Program. The specific requirements for regulated products—including Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) and energy rating labelling requirements—are set out in legislative instruments called GEMS determinations. Currently there are 22 products regulated under GEMS, 7 of which carry Energy Rating Labels (ERLs) and 20 that are subject to minimum energy performance requirements (MEPS). The department is seeking accredited testing agencies that can undertake the required testing services, noting that tenderers are required to hold accreditation or provide evidence that they are in the process of obtaining accreditation to test one or more of the GEMS products.

The contract is expected to be placed by July this year and will run for a three year term. The closing date for this RFT is 17 June 2021
