Products under the E3 Programme

A range of residential, commercial and industrial products need to meet minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) or display the Energy Rating Label in New Zealand, and we are looking at expanding these measures to further products.

Regulatory requirements

If you import, manufacture or sell products in New Zealand that are regulated for MEPS or the Energy Rating Label (ERL) under the Energy Efficiency (Energy Using Products) Regulations 2002 (the regulations), you are required to meet certain legal obligations.
