Misuse of CEC accredited installer details

17 October 2019

The Clean Energy Regulator and the Clean Energy Council (CEC) are targeting non-compliance and fraud associated with the misuse of CEC installer accreditation details where the installer recorded against the installation did not actually conduct the installation.

Eligible small-scale technology certificates

In the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), it is a requirement for eligible small-scale technology certificate (STC) creations that an accredited CEC installer conducts the installation of the small generation units, and fulfil their obligations, under the Clean Energy Council Install and Supervise Guidelines for Accredited Installers.

Registered agents found to be creating non-compliant or fraudulent STCs through the misuse of CEC installer accreditation details may have their REC registry account and registration suspended and the commencement of civil proceedings and/or criminal prosecution. Installers may have their CEC accreditation suspended or cancelled by the CEC.

Fraud and non-compliance

The Clean Energy Regulator takes fraud and non-compliance seriously and takes necessary enforcement action to ensure the integrity of the SRES.

  • We work in close partnership with other Australian regulatory agencies. This includes sharing of relevant information, intelligence gathering, and referring matters to law enforcement.
  • The 2019-20 Compliance and Enforcement Priorities focuses on false claims for STCs and taking enforcement action against agents who fail to apply due diligence.

If you have information you would like to provide to the Clean Energy Regulator on the misuse of installer details, please referrals@cleanenergyregulator.gov.au or phone 1300 553 542.
