Your steps to compliance
Is your product covered by the Regulations? If it is, you’ll need to complete the requirements set out here, including meeting the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) and Mandatory Energy Performance Labelling (MEPL) requirements.
Meet New Zealand MEPS and MEPL requirements
You need to test your products or obtain a test report to the applicable Standards to make sure your products meet the New Zealand MEPS and/or MEPL requirements.
Seven products have Mandatory Energy Performance Labeling (MEPL) requirements. If you sell, lease, hire, or hire purchase these products, it’s your responsibility to make sure the label is correctly displayed and supplied with each one.
Reporting sales data
If your product is covered by the Regulations you need to provide sales data to EECA each year.
The Regulations apply unless your product:
- isn’t covered by the Regulations
- has already been used by a consumer in New Zealand (second-hand products)
- meets conditions under the Trans-Tasman Mutual Recognition Agreement (note that manufacturers and importers are still required to provide sales data to EECA).
