Crackdown on false Energy Star ratings
Your company could be penalised for an inaccurate or false Energy Star Rating.
What happens if your product fails a random energy efficiency test?
You can be forced to test up to 3 products at your own expense.
The Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Check Testing program uses market surveillance, reporting, and risk assessment to conduct random energy efficiency tests on appliances.
More than 1 in 10 appliances failed.
The Check Testing program uses one NATA-accredited lab and one lab only — that’s Comtest.
If you sell TVs, computers, or other electrical devices, you may be affected. Ask us whether you need energy efficiency testing.
Get your test right on your first try. Save time and costs by doing your energy efficiency testing with us. We’re up-to-date with the GEMS criteria and committed to keeping you in the loop with government legislation.
