Televisions and computer monitors are subject to minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and energy rating labelling requirements in Australia and New Zealand.

The Commonwealth Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER) – on behalf of the Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) Program – is planning to release a consultation regulatory impact statement (RIS) on the MEPS and labelling requirements for televisions, computer monitors and digital signage displays.

E3 is considering whether to update Australia and New Zealand’s television and computer monitor MEPS and labelling requirements and align these requirements with international standards. E3 is also considering whether to extend energy efficiency labelling to include digital signage displays to align with the new European requirements for electronic displays.

Consultation

An issues paper has been released for comment to inform the development of a consultation regulatory impact statement (RIS) on the MEPS and labelling requirements for televisions, computer monitors and digital signage displays.

Public consultation is open until 7 April 2022 and is being run on DISER’s Consultation Hub(external link)

Please submit any feedback via the Hub.
