This instrument repeals the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Registration Fees) Instrument (No. 1) 2021. This instrument specifies the fees for each regulated product class that must be paid when a person applies to register a model of a regulated product. A new instrument was required to reflect the making and registration of a new GEMS Determination, the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Air Conditioners above 65kW) Determination 2022, and to ensure that the registration fee for the products covered by it was properly set. No changes were made to the existing registration fees. The new GEMS Determination was made to delay the commencement date of requirements from 1 April 2022 to 1 October 2022 due to representations made by industry that there were significant transport delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic that significantly impacted their ability to have their new compliant products available by the original commencement date.
