We monitor Regulations compliance through our labelling surveys and targeted online checks.
Labelling compliance surveys
Each year we visit motor vehicle traders to make sure they’re meeting vehicle fuel economy labeling requirements.
In 2019/20, we surveyed 312 on-site motor vehicle traders.
The compliance rate is approximately 77% which is lower than our expectations. Enhancements in market monitoring (including interpretation of compliance requirements) have identified areas where improvements could be made by traders to meet their statutory requirements. EECA will soon be implementing an education campaign.
