To be listed on the register of solar water heaters, all solar water heaters and air source heat pumps must be certified to
Australian and New Zealand Standard 2712:2007. Compliance with the standard must be demonstrated by providing the Clean Energy Regulator with an
Australian and New Zealand Standard 2712:2007 licensing schedule that identifies all the models you wish to have listed on the register.
The Clean Energy Regulator will not accept submissions for products that do not have
Australian and New Zealand Standard 2712:2007 certification. All models submitted must be certified by the application closing date or the submission will not be accepted. The Clean Energy Regulator strongly recommends manufacturers speak with their
conformity assessment body well in advance of the application closing date.
Solar water heater models with a capacity of 700 litres or less must be given a model product certification to Australian and New Zealand Standard 2712:2007 by a
conformity assessment body. Note: only air source heat pump water heaters with storage capacity of 425 litres or less are eligible under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme.
Solar water heater models with a storage capacity of more than 700 litres must have components that are certified to the Australian standard(s) relevant to that part of the solar water heater, by a
conformity assessment body. The list of relevant standards can be found in clause 1.3 of Australian and New Zealand Standard 2712:2007.
Models with storage capacity of more than 700 litres must also meet the storage tank requirements set out in Australian Standard 4692.1:2005, or the requirements set out in the
documentasset:Heat loss test procedure for solar water heaters with a capacity more than 630L.
