Label Name: Energy Rating Label

Eexcutive Bodies: State and territory governments

Executive Type: Mandatory Comparison Label

  Brief Introduction:

As early as in the middle 1970’s, the two largest states of Australia, NSW and Victoria, have made a proposal together to advance the Energy Rating Label scheme, which was delay to be introduced in 1986 as a compulsory and mandatory label. There were 5 states and one territory agreed to implement it in 1992, and in 2000 it became a compulsory scheme nationwide.
Energy Rating Label aims to help consumers to compare the energy efficiency of similar products in Australia market on the basis of equality as well as to stimulate manufacturers to reduce energy consumption of appliances. Although this label adopts conformity system of self-declaration like CE, relevant enterprises are obliged to register in the Australian Greenhouse Office(AGO). To ensure the accuracy of energy efficiency manufacturers have declared, Australian government adopts the government/state-testing scheme, that is, to purchase household appliances from retailing channels and then send them to an accredited third-party laboratory for testing. If the testing data indicates unconformity of a manufacturer, this manufacturer will be punished according to the state law and the product registration will be cancelled (dealership cancelled). The government bears the original testing costs, any cost arising from testifying or overthrowing the original testing results shall be at the manufacturers’ expense.

Main features of design of Energy Rating Label
   a) The stars directly indicate the model’s energy consumption, efficiency becomes higher as the stars increase. Only if appliances have met relevant requirements of Australia standards, can they be marked with Star Rating Label. For instance, the Energy Rating Labels for air conditioners range from one to six stars. More stars mean higher efficiency. Currently, the most qualified electrical appliances in Australia market obtain four stars, most of electrical appliances obtain two to three stars.
    b) The energy consumption value (usually kilowatt hours/year) is based on the tested annual power consumption and information about the typical use of the household appliances.

 
  Testing Scope:

Refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, clothes dryers, dishwashers, air conditioners, etc.
