Almost all Australian white goods meet the legal requirement to carry an energy efficiency rating label according to a recent survey. The regulation is currently under revision to include new kinds of products.

The Australian Government has proposed new national legislation for Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) and energy labeling which is now up for stakeholder comments.

Products covered by the proposal include those belonging to the following groups: White goods, Home Entertainment, Heating and Cooling appliances, IT and Office Equipment, Lighting, Chilled and boiling water dispensers, Refrigerated beverage vending machines, Industrial, Commercial Refrigeration, Factory equipment etc

Energy standards for Australian products
It is currently mandatory for white goods and television sets offered for sale in Australia to carry an approved energy label. The energy requirements on household refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners will undergo changes in 2010.
