Posted on: January 17th, 2014 by jaladesign

The final report on the review was completed on 30 June 2010 and has now been tabled in both Houses of Parliament. The review’s findings are expected to be considered by both the Australian Government and the Environment Protection and Heritage Council (EPHC) during 2010-11, with a joint interim government response and action plan expected to be released later this year.

The WELS scheme completed its fifth year of operation in 2009-10. Consistent with the requirements of section 76 of the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Act 2005, an independent review of the scheme’s five years of operation was undertaken. The review was required to consider the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of the scheme and made recommendations for its improvement. More about the review can be read here.

In consultation with the states and territories, the then Minister for Environment Protection, Heritage and the Arts, the Hon Peter Garrett AM MP appointed Dr Chris Guest to undertake the review. Dr Guest released a discussion paper and consulted with stakeholders from the state and territory governments as well as water utilities, industry and consumer representatives. Public submissions were invited over a four-week period from April to May 2010 with 28 submissions received.
