Standards and regulations projects

Standards underpin regulation by providing technical specifications and testing protocols for appliances and technologies that are permitted to be sold in New Zealand.

EECA is closely involved in New Zealand, trans-Tasman and international standards development, with active involvement in 25 standards committees covering technologies such as gas, electricity and solar power. EECA also participates in standards for air conditioning, whiteware and lighting.

Note: standards and regulations relating to the E3 programme are housed in the Measures under consideration page.
