Commercial refrigerators

Some commercial refrigerated display cabinets must comply with minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) if they’re to be sold in New Zealand.

Download product guidelines

Our guidelines tell you which commercial refrigerated display cabinets are covered by MEPS and energy rating labels, and how to register products and comply with the regulations.

Product consultation

We are consulting on a regulation impact statement (RIS) which investigates MEPS revision for refrigerated display cabinets, extending MEPS to storage cabinets and adopting or adapting international methods of test and MEPS levels. This is a joint New-Zealand-Australia proposal under the E3 program.

Submissions and requests for meeting information, should be emailed to by 2 September 2016.

You can read the full proposal on the joint Australia-New Zealand Energy Rating website.
