And it was taken into effect on 1st, Oct, 2012. New GEMS regulations have not only include main policies of the old one, such as Minimum Energy Performance Standards (short as MEPS), ERLS, E3, but also expand the span of energy efficiency to include reducing greenhouse gases emission and promoting utilization efficiency, at the same time, providing manufactures and customers with some advice on the minimum cost of the entire product and therefore they can make the most excellent decision. Since 1st, Oct, 2012, Energy Efficiency MEPS Certification has been replaced with Energy Efficiency GEMS Certification by Australia and New Zealand. And the transition period is from 1st, Oct, 2012 to 30th, Sep, 2013. To the products applied for MEPS certification during the transition period, it is allowed to change into GEMS certification for free. And MEPS certification would not be accepted after the transition period.
